Select your Disaster Recovery (DR) solution

On-premise recovery of your VMware infrastructure

The recovery site for your VMware infrastructure will be set up using vCloud® Availability (vCAv), which replicates your data to the Selectel cloud and recovers the infrastructure in the event of a disaster.

RPO*: from 5 min

Recovery from two Selectel data centers in the same region

When building a cloud in Selectel, you can select a fault-tolerant VMware Stretched vSAN™ cluster. This solution will automatically replicate your data storage to two data centers and run virtual machines on the recovery site.

RPO*: close to zero

Recovery from Selectel regions

Fault-tolerant infrastructure deployed across multiple geographic regions will be powered by vCloud® Availability (vCAv).

RPO*: from 5 min
* RPO — Recovery Point Objective

On-premise recovery of your VMware infrastructure

Features of vCloud® Availability

This service enables the disaster recovery of your virtual machines to the Selectel cloud. With vCloud® Availability, you can configure the parameters of replication and recovery for each virtual machine. If the primary site goes offline, the virtual machines will failover to Selectel.

Benefits of vCAv


Configure fault tolerance for individual virtual machines and vApps.


Ensure continuous data replication to the Selectel site without interrupting your services.


Protect and compress your replication traffic with TLS.


The use of TCP port 443 eliminates the need for additional configuration.
