All businesses expand, and their IT ecosystems should keep up with their pace. Often, such enlargement implies that IT teams are to manage multiple distant locations. Sure, growth brings the department new toys to play and boosts environments’ compute power and storage capacity. It also allows bringing a better disaster recovery strategy to life. But, there’s one thing: admins’ work becomes more hectic. Indeed, that’s your storage admin’s mission to deliver your colleagues data availability wherever they are and whenever they need. Things become even worse if you cannot employ public cloud so you can count only on on-premises resources. Looks not that good, right? Fortunately, we know a way around – stretched clustering. Find out from this video how building Hyper-V or vSphere stretched clusters comes in handy.
