Hexpol Compounding is a premier manufacturer of rubber and rubber products worldwide. Since 2014, VMsources has assisted Hexpol in designing and deploying VMware vSphere clusters to provide local manufacturing systems with vSphere High Availability and Business Continuity with Veeam Backup and Replication.
On January 7, 2021, Hexpol experienced a catastrophic fire at its Jonesborough, TN facility which put our design and planning to the test. Because Hexpol utilizes Veeam Backup Copy to preserve systems offsite, we were able to begin full-VM restore procedures directly into our Flagstaff, AZ VMware vCloud.
VMsources practices a particular type of DR Networking we refer to as a "DR Bubble Network" which creates an identical replica of the production network in our vCloud, so no "re-IP'ing" or any other adjustments are required.
Once the systems were restored and powered-on, we created a VPN to Hexpol and users were able to log-in right away. In all, it took about 6 hours from opening a ticket to bringing the logical resources for the facility back online!
Offsite Backup is NOT available for immediate power-on and must be restored first.
Bubble DR Networks create an exact replica of the production network, no adjustments are required.
