Auckland University's virtualised disaster recovery regime

Simon Sharwood

"In Auckland we have to think about a volcano popping up," says Auckland University's System  Architect John Askew. "But we have too much data to replicate to the 'other island' or Australia."

So how does the University back up its critical applications, 800-plus virtual machines and the storage underpinning its infrastructure?

Askew explains the institution's new disaster recovery regime at SearchCIO ANZ.
