Method and System for Managing Multi -Tenant Disaster Recovery Process with a Single Point of Control
Disclosed is a method and system for managing entire disaster recovery process including, but not limited to, definition, planning, practice, failover etc., for multiple tenants with a single point of control.
The method and system disclosed herein integrates a management of virtualization, network and storage for an application into a single point of control, and additionally integrate the management of disaster recovery into the same single point of control infrastructure (console).
In an implementation, the method and system creates a class definition for application disaster recovery. The method and system configure application or set of applications as a group and define a class of service or priority (e.g. Gold-Bronze or Priority 1-10) for each application. Thereafter, storage mirroring technology like (synch (metro mirror), async (global mirror), or staggered async) is defined in the system. Subsequently, resources to be consumed by the applications during one or more occasion like during replication, failover, etc., are defined in the system. The resources definition includes, but not limited to, storage pools, mdisks etc. The method and system facilitates an administrator to visualize and manage network resources during failover based on the priority and requirement of the applications in the multi-tenant environment.
