Administering VMware Site Recovery Manager 5.0 - VMware Press

Last week, I received my copy of Mike Laverick's new book, Administering VMware Site Recovery Manager 5.0.  And as usual to Mike's writing skills, this book is well written and filled with great information on the subject -- a subject that Mike has become quite the expert on over the years.  This is also the first book that I've received from VMware Press.  And they did a really nice job on this one... I look forward to more books from them.

I'd highly recommend this book to VMware vSphere administrators looking to gain a better knowledge on VMware's SRM 5.0.  You couldn't do better than to get insight from Mike Laverick on this topic.

So what will you learn?  


Mike Laverick fully explains SRM 5.0’s failover/failback procedures, walks readers through configuring storage replication with hardware from several leading suppliers, and shows how to efficiently implement fast, automated, centralized disaster recovery. Drawing on his extensive experience with SRM and vSphere, Laverick identifies common pitfalls and errors, explains why they occur, and shows exactly how to fix them.  Fully up to date for SRM 5.0, this book delivers “in-the-trenches” technical knowledge you won’t find anywhere else, including expert guidance for utilizing SRM 5.0’s advanced new vSphere Replication (VR).

Coverage includes items such as:

  • Going “under the hood” with SRM 5.0 to thoroughly understand its operation
  • Configuring SRM 5.0 with Dell EqualLogic Replication, EMC Celerra Replicator, EMC CLARiiON MirrorView, HP StorageWorks P4000 Virtual SAN Appliance with Remote Copy, and NetApp SnapMirror
  • Configuring multiple LUN/volumes with virtual machines and virtual disks
  • Installing VMware SRM and configuring vSphere Replication (VR)
  • Using VR to replicate VMs across locations without third-party storage array-based replication

  • Efficiently configuring protected and recovery sites
  • Using Reprotect Mode to accelerate failback and enhance VM portability
  • Using dependencies and priority orders to configure SRM based on your existing categories of applications and services
  • Leveraging SRM 5.0’s scalability improvements to serve large-scale and/or cloud environments
  • Defining custom recovery plans
