Protecting your data


Protecting your data

Makes applications resilient to underlying hardware failures.

Provides low-cost, high availability solutions on cost-effective hardware.

  • Windows Azure backup.

Data protection manager.

Supports continuous availability across storage, networking, and Hyper-V.

Protects data across the stacks

File system enhancements.

Hyper-V replica and Hyper-V recovery manager.

Protecting files and directories file system enhancements


Protecting files and directories: File system enhancements

NTFS improvements

  • Rapid recovery from file system corruption without affecting availability

  • Data corruption virtually eliminated through allocate-on-write

  • Period checksum validation of file system meta-data

  • Seamless data integrity protection

Resilient File System (ReFS)


  • Seconds to fix corrupted data.

  • No offline time when used with CSV.

  • Disk scanning process separated from repair process.

  • Online scanning with volume and offline repair.

  • Rapid recovery from file system corruption without affecting availability.

  • Resilient against power outage corruption.

  • Periodic checksum validation of file system metadata.

  • Improved data integrity protection.

  • ReFS remains online during subdirectory reconstruction and knows where orphaned subdirectories exist andautomatically reconstructs them.

  • Ideal for file server volumes.

Disk resiliency with storage spaces


Disk resiliency with storage spaces


  • Data is striped across disks.


  • Data mirrored to a duplicate disk.

  • Two and three-way mirroring.

  • Mirrored configuration with clustering for workloads.


  • Data striped to all-but one of the disks. The remaining disk contains a checksum bit enabling data to be generated for a failed disk.

  • Parity with clustering for archives.

  • Optimized for Microsoft applications.

  • Quick item-level recovery for SharePoint and Hyper-V.

  • Supports Windows applications that use VSS writer.

  • Customizable XML files for other applications.

  • Unified disk, tape, and cloud data recovery.

  • Protection of clustered workloads.

  • Integration with WS 2012 technologies.

  • SLA-based alerting.

  • UNIX/Linux support.

  • Certificate-based protection.

  • PowerShell support.

  • Centralized monitoring and troubleshooting with OM.

  • Remote administration.

  • Role-based access.

  • Consolidated and categorized alerts.

  • Integration with other SC components

Hyper v replica


Hyper‑V Replica

Replicate Hyper‑V VMs from a Primary to a Replica site

  • Affordable in-box business continuity and disaster recovery

  • Configurable replication frequencies of 30 seconds, 5 minutes and 15 minutes

  • Secure replication across network

  • Agnostic of hardware on either site

  • No need for other virtual machine replication technologies

  • Automatic handling of live migration

  • Simpler configuration and management

Upon site failure, VMs can be started on secondary site

Once Hyper-V Replica is enabled, VMs begin replication

Once replicated, changes replicated on chosen frequency

Hyper v replica extended replication


Hyper-V Replica | Extended Replication

Replicate to 3rd Location for Extra Level of Resiliency

Replication can be enabled on the 1st replica to a 3rd site

Replication configured from primary to secondary

  • Once a VM has been successfully replicated to the replica site, replicacan be replicated to a 3rd location

  • Chained Replication

  • Extended Replica contents match the original replication contents

  • Extended Replica replication frequencies can differ from original replica

  • Useful for scenarios such as SMB -> Service Provider -> Service Provider DR Site

DR Site



Hyper v recovery manager


Hyper-V Recovery Manager

Orchestrate protection and recovery of private clouds

  • Protect important services bycoordinating replication and recovery of VMM-managed private clouds

  • Automates replication of VMs within clouds between sites

  • Hyper-V Replica provides replication, orchestrated by Hyper-V Recovery Manager

  • Can be used for planned, unplanned and testing failover between sites

  • Integrate with scripts for customization of recovery plans
