What is Site Recovery Manager?
Site Recovery Manager Complements vSphere:
 simplest disaster protection with auto vCenter discovery and
embedded array based replication management
 enable frequent non-disruptive testing
 ensure fast, automated failover
Simplify management of recovery and migration plans
 Replace manual runbooks with centralized recovery plans
 From weeks to minutes to set up new plan
SRM Momentum:

Technology – vSphere Replication
• Virtual machines replicated without advanced array
functionality
• Enables replication between heterogeneous
datastores
• Replication is managed as a property of a virtual
machine
• Efficient replication minimizes impact on VM
workloads

vSphere Replication Details
 Replication Granularity per Virtual Machine
• Can opt to replicate all or a subset of the VM’s disks
• You can create the initial copy in any way you want - even via
sneaker net!
• You have the option to place the replicated disks where you
want
• Disks are replicated in group consistent manner
 Simplified Replication Management
• User selects destination location for target disks
• User selects Recovery Point Objective (RPO)
• User can supply initial copy to save on bandwidth
 Replication Specifics
• Changes on the source disks are tracked by ESX
• Deltas are sent to the remote site
• Does not use VMware snapshots

Replication UI
Select VMs to replicate from vSphere client by right click
options
Can do this on one VM, or multiple VMs simultaneously

vSphere Replication 1.0 Limitations
 Focus on virtual disks of powered-on VMs
• ISOs and floppy images are not replicated
• Powered-off/suspended VMs not replicated
• Non-critical files not replicated (e.g. logs, stats, swap, dumps)
 vSR works at the virtual device layer
•
•
•
•
Independent of disk format specifics
Independent of primary-side snapshots
VM is recovered with collapse snapshots
Physical RDMs are not supported
 Storage DRS , FT, linked clones, VM templates not
supported
 Automated failback of vSR-protected VMs not
supported yet
 Virtual Hardware 7, or later, in the VM is required
 Minimum RPO of 15 minutes

Planned Migrations For App Consistency & No Data
Loss
Overview
Planned Migration
1 Shut down
production VMs
3 Recover appconsistent VMs
Site A
Site B
vSphere
vSphere
Two workflows can be applied to recovery plans:
 DR failover
 Planned migration
Planned migration ensures application
consistency and no data-loss during migration
 Graceful shutdown of production VMs in
application consistent state
 Data sync to complete replication of VMs
 Recover fully replicated VMs
Replication
2
Sync data, stop replication
and present LUNs to vSphere
Benefits
Better support for planned migrations
 No loss of data during migration process
 Recover ‘application-consistent’ VMs at
recovery site

Planned Migration
New is Planned Migration.
Will shutdown
protected VM’s,
and then
synchronize
them!

Automated Failback To Streamline Bi-Directional
Migrations
Automated Failback
Overview
Re-protect VMs from Site B to Site A
 Reverse replication
 Apply reverse resource mapping
Reverse original recovery plan
Site A
Site B
vSphere
vSphere
Reverse
Replication
Automate failover from Site B to Site A
 Reverse original recovery plan
Restrictions
 Does not apply if Site A has undergone
major changes / been rebuilt
 Not available with vSphere Replication
Benefits
Simplify failback process
 Automate replication management
 Eliminate need to set up new recovery plan
Streamline frequent bi-directional migrations

13
Reprotect
After you use planned migration (or DR Event) to
migrate to your recovery site, you must reprotect to
enable the failback.

14
Failback
Description
• “Single button” to
failback all recovered
VMs
• Interfaces with
storage to
automatically reverse
replication
Benefits
• Facilitates DR operations for enterprises that are
mandated to perform a true failover as part of DR
testing
• Simplifies recovery process after disaster
• Replays existing
recovery plans – so
new virtual machines
are not part of
failback

Site B (Recovery)
15
Failback
To failback, you need first to do a migration (DR or
Planned), followed by a reprotect.
To do an actual failback, the recovery plan is now
run again
The recovery plan will now failback the VMs to the
original site.

16
Failback (continued)
Reprotect is now almost complete . . .

and some wonderful customers!

Miscellaneous
IPv6
• SRM will support IPv6 for all network links
• vSphere Replication will support
communication over IPv6 if underlying ESXi
servers support IPv6
IP Customization performance increase
In guest callouts:
• Since 1.0 you can execute a script that was
held on the SRM server, now you can do it
inside the guest
• Great for application customization

API
Existing API on recovery site preserved
New API on both protected and recovery sides
Protected Site API set includes:
 List replicated datastores / protection groups / resources /
VM
 Query the status of protection for a VM or VMs
 Protect or unprotect one or more VM
 Status of protection group
Recovery Side API includes:
 Recovery Plan info
 Start / cancel, list / answer prompts
 Get XML representation of historical run of plan
 Get basic result information of a plan (name, start, stop,
etc.)
