Hypervisor server diversification is becoming a key initiative for many businesses. In an effort to lower licensing costs by introducing competition for their hypervisor footprint, many organizations may be unwittingly taking on the potential burden of added infrastructure management, higher costs and increased backup complexity of their virtualized environment. On the other hand, if data centers had the ability to transparently migrate data from one hypervisor to another, many of these issues would be eliminated. As a result, any-to-any hypervisor recovery is becoming a critical requirement for data centers looking to drive down costs and increase flexibility.
In order to achieve optimal flexibility and cost, and respond quickly to changing business demands, large data centers – particularly CSPs/MSPs – need advanced backup and recovery capabilities to increase utilization of their hypervisor infrastructure.
