VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager
VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager offers simple and reliable disaster recovery and site migration software for all virtualised applications.
VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager allows users to expand disaster protection to all your applications and smaller sites. Users are able to reduce the cost of disaster recovery by consolidating recovery infrastructure and using cost-efficient vSphere Replication. This software also helps to simplify management of disaster recovery with centralised recovery plans, while ensuring fast and reliable recovery with automated DR failovers and failbacks, non-disruptive testing and planned migrations.
- Lower cost for DR. Site Recovery Manager can reduce the
operating overhead by replacing complex manual
runbooks with simple, automated recovery plans that can be tested
- Hardware and app independence. The combination of vSphere,
Virtual SAN and vSphere Replication provides a DR infrastructure
that is completely hardware-independent at the compute and storage
layers. Site Recovery Manager offers DR automation for any vSphere VM.
- Choice for replication: Companies can use vSphere Replication
to eliminate storage lock-in and simplify data management with
a VM-centric approach, or array-based technologies to leverage
current storage investments or ensure zero data loss through
- Simplified setup. Setting up a recovery plan can be done in a
matter of minutes. Ongoing DR provisioning to new VMs can be tenant-driven through predefined policies via blueprints in vCloud
- Peace of mind. Recovery plans can be tested as frequently as
required without disrupting production systems through automation.
A detailed report of the testing outcomes, including RTO achieved,
delivers confidence that DR objectives were met and provides a way
to demonstrate compliance with regulatory requirements.
- Automated execution. Every DR workflow is automated to
minimise RTOs and eliminate errors from manual processes.
Automation also enables different use cases. The planned migration workflow enables proactive disaster
avoidance and data center mobility without data loss in an
- DR to the Cloud services. Companies that don’t have the financial
resources to invest in a secondary site can use the cloud of a
Service Provider as recovery infrastructure.
VMware has built an ecosystem of Service Providers that offer
cloud-based DR services powered by Site Recovery Manager.
