I think the announcement of VMware's new vCHS disaster recovery service deserves some extra attention.
But there’s more: having been in the DR and BC space for a l-o-o-o-n-g time, I think the new vCHS RaaS (recovery as a service) brings something comparatively new to the table.
And, more broadly, this new service clearly reflects the distinctive vCHS “works the way you do” philosophy.
I can see three use cases for vCHS - DR. The obvious one is as a net-new solution for important applications that should be protected, but aren’t. There’s another market out there with folks who aren’t happy with what they’ve already got for remote recovery (costs, complexity, etc.) And there’s a third great use case around tertiary protection in addition to an existing remote recovery solution.
