Migration to the Сloud with vCloud Availability

vCloud Availability enables businesses to quickly and securely migrate between clouds and on-premises, as well as quickly restore business processes in the event of disaster or force majeure in the primary data center.

vCloud Availability migration

vCloud Availability is VMware's powerful solution that enables flexible migration and disaster recovery between a customer site on the VMware vSphere/VMware vCloud Director platform and provider's cloud on the VMware vCloud Director platform.

With vCloud Availability, you can easily, cost-effectively and with maximum security migrate virtual machines from customer infrastructure to a provider's cloud environment and back again, creating backups in the cloud for quick recovery in case of disasters. Migration is accomplished with minimal downtime and no data loss.

VMware vCloud Availability addresses the following challenges:

  • Migrating virtual machines from on-premises to the cloud
  • Migrating virtual machines between vCloud Director sites
  • Migrating virtual machines from the cloud provider's site to the customer site
  • Automated replication to the cloud or customer premises with flexible RPO\RTO options
  • Migration management from a VMware vSphere interface
  • Replication and disaster recovery in the cloud

How to activate the service?
Please send a request to Cloud4Y managers, or submit a ticket to the technical support service to enable vCAV.
How is the service billed?
The cost depends on the number of machines that are reserved by the customer, as well as the total amount of exchange traffic between sites.
How to manage the service?
After activating the service, an additional management section appears in the vCloud Director interface.
What is a backup data center?
Backup and replication allow you to have a copy of a virtual machine (VM) ready to run. If the primary VM fails, you can immediately switch to a standby VM.
Can I use it as file storage and let other users access it?
No, you can't. Cloud Storage service is designed for this purpose.
How does vCloud Availability work and what software does it use?
It works via VMware vCloud Availability.
Can I create replication tasks myself?
Yes, you can. There are limits set by Cloud4Y experts. But if necessary or by customer request, we can increase the limit on the number of concurrent replication jobs.
Do we need any software?
On-Prem migration requires vCenter Server 6.* and vCAV appliance installed on the client's side.
In the case of Cloud-To-Cloud migration, vCloud Director must be installed on the client's side.
