8. vCloud Operations Control : 8.8 Continuity Management
8.8 Continuity Management
Continuity Management for vCloud focuses on making sure that the service offerings based on vCloud and the infrastructure upon which they are hosted can be resumed within an agreed timeframe if service is disrupted—regardless of whether the outage is at the vApp level or impacts an entire vCloud environment instance. In this context, VMware defines two components to Continuity Management: Disaster Recovery (strategic), and vApp Backup and Restore (tactical).
