Use Multiple Interfaces for Convenient Backup Access

Posted on June 27, 2012 by Website Administrator

In previous blog entries, we’ve seen that a truly 100% homogeneous data center environment is far from the norm.  Rare is the data center that relies on a single server vendor or server type.  As a result, multiple management tools are often used, which can be a nightmare in its own right.  Managing a bunch of management tools seems a little redundant.

But maybe you are a one-stop-shop.  Perhaps you’ve configured all your Dell blade servers for easy management access via DRAC.  You’re on easy street, right?  Or you’ve virtualized.  You’re the resident VMware hero and you’re saving more money on hardware and power than you originally thought possible.  But you have all those DRAC connections on a secondary LAN.  What if you lose access?  Or you find yourself unable to restart a virtual machine through vCenter?  What then?
