Backup vs. Replication

What is the difference and do you need both?

Backup & Replication Facts:

  Backup:  A point in time copy of the production environment that is stored in an archive. 

            Pros:
               + Backup files can be compressed to save space and exist on slower, cheaper, commodity storage.
               + Backup files can be recovered for as long as you wish to retain the archive. 

Over Usage of vCPU

Did you know?

Assigning more vCPU’s to a VM may not necessarily increase CPU performance of a VM.   Here are some best practice recommendations.

  • Start with one vCPU per VM and increase as needed.
  • Do not assign more vCPUs than needed to a VM as this can unnecessarily limit resource availability for other VMs and increase CPU Ready wait time.
  • Performance degradation may occur on multiprocessor VMs in which the number of vCPUs was greater than the number of vCPUs in a NUMA node. Generally, try to keep multiprocessor VMs sized so that they fit within a NUMA node. In PvDC this would be (1, 2, 4, 6, and up o 8vCPU).

The Scourge of Ransomware

Don't let your data be Preyed upon...One of the most important assets to your company is your intellectual property, your data.

Often, it is taken for granted until it is gone: A Ransomware Strike.
How did this happen? Often ransomware infects your computer when you open an attachment in a dubious email or click a suspicious link on the web. Other forms need no human interaction and simply probe vulnerabilities on your perimeter network until they find a way in.
