Introducing the Jotelulu Disaster Recovery Service

Share

Today, we want to tell you all about the Jotelulu Disaster Recovery service and how it can help protect your business.

The Jotelulu Disaster Recovery service provides both customers and Partners with a tool to guarantee the high availability of resources and services in the event of a disaster.

The service allows you to replicate your ‘Remote Desktop’ and ‘Servers’ subscriptions on another site, thereby reducing the impact if something happens to the primary data centre.

It also allows Partners to select an existing Jotelulu subscription and regularly replicate it on another availability zone. This way, the associated IP address and all customer services will be protected if you need to move your resources to a different site. This also ensures a rapid failover that is completely transparent to the end user.

NOTE:

  1. Like many other Jotelulu services, this is a “live” service. Over time, improvements will be made and new features will be added.
  2. It is possible to configure multiple DR plans on a single DR subscription.
  3. Each DR plan can have only one primary site.

How does the Jotelulu Disaster Recovery Service Work?

First of all, you need to select the primary subscription. This is the subscription that provides services to your customers. Let’s take a ‘Servers’ subscription, for example. When you activate the DR service, this will replicate the subscription in another region. This secondary subscription acts as a mirror of your primary subscription.

When setting up the DR service, you can choose how many recovery points to make, how often, etc. But you can make changes to these settings at any time.

The secondary subscription will be invisible to end users as long as the primary subscription remains active.

If you want to stop replicating your resources or services, you have the option to either pause or stop replication:

  • Pause: When you pause replication, no more recovery points are created until you re-activate the service.
  • Stop: When you stop replication, no more recovery points are created until it is re-activated, but you will be able to change your replica settings in the meantime.

In the event that you want to activate the failover and move your resources to the secondary subscription, the backup site will take over immediately. This is because everything will already be copied and ready to go.

Once you activate the failover, the secondary subscription becomes visible and accessible for customers. Meanwhile, your primary subscription will no longer be visible or accessible.

As well as the replication settings mentioned above, you also have to choose whether to use IP or DNS failover. This will determine how your resources are moved. However, in both cases, the failover will be transparent to the end-user and the IP address will remain the same.

Lastly, it’s important to point out that, once you have moved your resources, there will be no DR replication of the secondary site and it will behave like a brand new subscription.

We make the difficult easy

Existing Disaster Recovery tools often require advanced knowledge to manage, demanding expertise that is difficult to acquire.

Jotelulu’s Disaster Recovery aims to make the difficult easy and offers a very simple deployment based on a three-step configuration:

Origin (Primary Site)
Determine the origin location of the subscription on which the Disaster Recovery service will be established.

Destination (Recovery Site)
Set the destination location (availability zone) where you want the Recovery Site to be deployed.

Replication characteristics
Specify the data related to the number of copies to be kept and the frequency at which the replication will be performed.
