Most datacenters are designed in an active/passive configuration. The passive datacenter is used in “what-if” situations and are strictly deployed for disaster recovery scenarios. A lot of resources are consumed for datacenters to be used only for the “what-if” scenarios. The Presidio solution described herein offers an intelligent datacenter solution that brings a true active/active structure to utilize two or more datacenters equally.
The main challenges that the intelligent datacenter solution solves are:
- Eliminates single points of failures across datacenters
- Minimizes Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs) and Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs)
- Maximizes resource utilization by simultaneously using all datacenters
- Better utilization of infrastructure costs
