NEW VMware White Paper: 'New Capabilities of vCenter Site Recovery Manager 6.1'

VMware Site Recovery Manager 6.1 is an extension to VMware vCenter that provides disaster recovery, site migration and non-disruptive testing capabilities to VMware customers. It is fully integrated with VMware vCenter Server and VMware vSphere Web Client.

Site Recovery Manager works in conjunction with various replication solutions including VMware vSphere Replication to automate the process of migrating, recovering, testing, re-protecting and failing-back virtual machine workloads.

Site Recovery Manager servers coordinate the operations of the VMware vCenter Server at two sites. This is so that as virtual machines at the protected site are shut down, copies of these virtual machines at the recovery site start up. By using the data replicated from the protected site these virtual machines assume responsibility for providing the same services.

Migration of protected inventory and services from one site to the other is controlled by a recovery plan that specifies the order in which virtual machines are shut down and started up, the resource pools to which they are allocated, and the networks they can access. Site Recovery Manager enables the testing of recovery plans, using a temporary copy of the replicated data, and isolated networks in a way that does not disrupt ongoing operations at either site. Multiple recovery plans can be configured to migrate individual applications and entire sites providing finer control over what virtual machines are failed over and failed back. This also enables flexible testing schedules.

Site Recovery Manager runs in conjunction with the VMware vSphere 6.0 platform, extending the feature set of the virtual infrastructure platform to provide for rapid business continuity through partial or complete site failures.
