VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager

Now you can afford to protect all your applications instead of having to prioritize which business critical apps deserve disaster protection. Site Recovery Manager leverages cost-efficient vSphere Replication or storage-based replication to provide:

  • Simple and powerful replication of applications to a secondary site
  • Simple management of recovery and migration plans
  • Non-disruptive testing
  • Fully automated site recovery and migration

Rethink Traditional Disaster Recovery

Protecting applications against disasters has never been more important. Unfortunately, traditional disaster recovery solutions are too expensive and complicated to protect any but the most critical applications.

Expand disaster protection to all your applications and smaller sites with vCenter Site Recovery Manager. Reduce the cost of disaster recovery by consolidating your recovery infrastructure and using cost-efficient vSphere Replication.

Simplify management of disaster recovery with centralized recovery plans. Ensure fast and reliable recovery with automated DR failovers and failbacks, non-disruptive testing and planned migrations.

Choose the Best Replication Option to Meet Your Needs

Traditional disaster recovery runbooks are complex and quickly get out of sync with evolving IT configurations. Replace your manual runbooks with centralized recovery plans managed directly from VMware vCenter Server.

  • Capture the complete recovery process in a simple, centralized recovery plan
  • Simplify set up of recovery plans by automating many of the traditional recovery steps
  • Fulfill compliance requirements with documented recovery plans and test results

Meet RTO Objectives with Automated DR Failover and Non-Disruptive Testing

Traditional site failovers often fail to meet their Response Time Objectives (RTOs), due to manual processes and out-of-date runbooks. Ensure fast and reliable recovery and meet your RTO objectives by automating the failover process and testing your failover plans frequently.

  • Automate the failover process and eliminate the risk inherent in manual processes
  • Perform failover testing without impacting production systems

Streamline Planned Migrations and Preventive Failovers

Execute preventive failovers to avoid imminent disasters and planned migrations for global load balancing or to avoid downtime due to upcoming maintenance windows. Streamline routine migrations with planned migration and automated failback.

  • Ensure zero data loss and application consistent recovery for planned migrations
  • Automate failback of virtual machines to their initial production site for more efficient routine migrations
