VMware Site Recovery Manager 6.1
Automated Application Availability and Mobility for Private Cloud Environments
What Is Site Recovery Manager?
VMware Site Recovery Manager is an automation software that integrates with an underlying replication technology to provide policy-based management, non-disruptive testing, and automated orchestration of recovery plans. To deliver flexibility and choice, it integrates natively with VMware vSphere® Replication™ and also supports a broad range of array-based replication solutions available from all major VMware storage partners.
Site Recovery Manager natively leverages the benefits of VMware vSphere and can also take advantage of the Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) architecture, integrating with other VMware solutions, such as VMware NSX™(network virtualization) and VMware Virtual SAN™(hyper-converged software-defined storage).
By allowing users to test and automate the migration of applications between sites with minimal or no downtime, Site Recovery Manager fulfills the needs for a variety of use cases, such as disaster recovery, disaster avoidance, planned data center migrations, site-level load balancing, or even application maintenance testing.
Site Recovery Manager ensures fast and highly predictable recovery times, simplifies management through automation, and minimizes the total cost of ownership, making it the industry-leading solution to enable application availability and mobility across sites in private cloud environments.
What Else Do You Need?
Site Recovery Manager requires an underlying replication technology to orchestrate recovery operations of protected virtual machines.
Key Features and Capabilities
Traditional DR solutions that rely on manual processes often fail to meet business requirements because they are too expensive, complex and unreliable. Organizations using Site Recovery Manager obtain the following features and benefits.
Fast and Reliable recovery
Site Recovery Manager automates every aspect of executing a recovery plan in order to accelerate recovery and eliminate the risks involved with manual processes.
Zero-Downtime Application Mobility
Site Recovery Manager can enable live migration of applications between two sites when using a certified stretched solution. See the compatibility guide.
Simple and policy-based management
From the initial setup to the on-going management, Site Recovery Manager delivers simple and policy-based operations thanks to automation and integration with SDDC technology.
Up to 50% lower TCO
Site Recovery Manager can dramatically lower the total cost of ownership (TCO) through management and testing automation that eliminates the complexity of manual processes, while enabling the use of technology that lower capital expense for recovery infrastructure. These calculations were validated by a third-party global research firm.
