Capabilities & Benefits

Instant onboarding from within Prism

Setting up a disaster recovery solution has never been easier. There’s nothing for you to install. Turn on and manage the Xi Leap DR service from Prism, the interface you use to manage your Nutanix AOS clusters.

Categorize your VMs and apply protection policies and recovery plans to customize your environment. Use the same management interface to launch planned or unplanned failovers, as well as live DR testing on a non-production subnet.

Achieve SLAs with 1-Click failover & failback, and continuous testing

Failover and failback with one-click to keep your business applications, data, and services available when your datacenter goes down. Continuous testing ensures that your recovery plans do not fail you when you need them most. Plus, you get end-to-end security with encrypted data-at-rest and data-in-motion.

Seamless, Yet Flexible, Networking Options

Get fully isolated virtual networks (per tenant) and choose from a variety of connectivity options. You can use the one-click VPN option provided by Nutanix to get started immediately or bring your own. You may also use a private, low-latency and dedicated Direct Connect option provided by our partners.

Global Availability When You Need It

Nutanix and its partners continuously test, maintain, and proactively monitor a global footprint of datacenters to support your disaster recovery needs.

Regardless of where your applications, data, and services are hosted and consumed, Xi Leap offers a low-latency availability zone in most locations to ensure that your workloads are up 24/7.

Proven to Reduce Your Cost of Operations

Gone are the days where companies are precluded from DR solutions due to cost alone. Xi Leap protects your critical business applications by leveraging economies of scale with Nutanix Cloud services. We’ve removed power, rent, networking, operational and 3rd-party DR software as individual budget items, rolling them all into a single subscription service so there’s no guesswork.
