Web Host NewsLONDON – Compellent Technologies (NYSE:CML) today announced an expansion of its partnership with VMware with the availability of Compellent Storage Center systems bundled with VMware vCenter™ Site Recovery Manager. The new disaster recovery solution enables organisations to create a “disaster ready” cloud environment by automating the process of moving, protecting and recovering their data from virtually any disaster with minimal cost and effort.

Disaster recovery allows companies to protect their critical data, but typically has been difficult to achieve due to costs, manual processes and complexity. By combining Compellent Fluid Data storage with VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager, enterprises and service providers can centrally manage, update, change and test their recovery plans whenever needed from a single interface, even during normal operating hours.

Compellent will immediately offer this new option for disaster recovery through its global reseller network. To speed deployment and extend the business value of virtualisation, Compellent Copilot support services will provide a single contact point for infrastructure design, implementation and ongoing support.


Compellent is expanding its longstanding partnership with VMware to offer VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager as a bundled solution with Compellent Fluid Data storage.

* Compellent provides VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager together with Compellent remote replication, automated tiered storage and thin provisioning in a single, scalable platform, with enterprise management software to configure and initiate replication in as few as six clicks of the mouse.
* As part of the foundation for cloud computing, the automation provided by Compellent and VMware virtualisation enables enterprises and service providers to reduce disaster recovery costs, increase hardware efficiency, automate data movement and optimise network infrastructure.
* The combined solution is the next step in a pragmatic approach to creating and protecting cloud environments through simplified disaster recovery.
* Compellent Storage Center with VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager can:
o Slash the cost of disaster recovery by reducing hardware and software expenditures through virtualisation, lowering bandwidth cost by optimising data sent between sites, and reducing staffing costs with simplified management.
o Establish a resilient IT cloud that stays running through any disaster. Customers can keep data up-to-date using Compellent Live Volume technology for online data migration between arrays, Compellent Remote Instant Replay software to move space-efficient data snapshots between sites, and VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager to keep VMs in a constant state of readiness.
o Enable an agile and easy-to-manage disaster recovery plan by centralising administration of resources and allowing testing during normal operations.
