Re: Ask the Expert: VPLEX and RecoverPoint – What’s New?
Thanks for the first question. You are absolutely correct.
RecoverPoint can now be configured as a software-only solution, a virtual RecoverPoint Appliance (vRPA). The vRPA runs on a VMware virtual machine (VM) for less-demanding environments and is available with VNX. This brings an affordable Tier-1 data protection product to the Midrange saving customers up to 60%.
RecoverPoint now offers a choice to ensure the best value for a customer’s business and application environment. Customers can still choose a physical RecoverPoint appliance (RPA) for maximum performance and multi-site configurations. For small sites or less-demanding environments, customers can choose a software-only virtual RPA (vRPA) option for VNX for a lower total cost of ownership.
