Example text

Instructions to manage the storage arrays are encoded in what VMware calls Site Recovery Adapters (SRAs). Previously, the SRA only automated the testing and running of SRM’s Recovery Plans. But now the SRAs support the instructions required to carry out a failback routine. Prior to this, the administrator had to use the storage vendor’s management tools to manage replication paths. 0 ships with a process that VMware is calling Reprotect Mode. Prior to the reprotect feature it was up to the administrator to clear out stale objects in the vCenter inventory and re-create objects such as Protection Groups and Recovery Plans.

In the longer term, VMware remains committed to investing in technologies both internally and with its key partners. That could mean there will be no need to re-IP the guest operating system in the future. A Brief History of Life before VMware SRM To really appreciate the impact of VMware’s SRM, it’s worth it to pause for a moment to think about what life was like before virtualization and before VMware SRM was released. Until virtualization became popular, conventional DR meant dedicating physical equipment at the DR location on a one-to-one basis.

Although this approach is much neater, this in itself introduces a number of problems, not least of which is getting up to speed with your storage vendor’s replication technology and ensuring that enough bandwidth is available from the Protected Site to the Recovery Site to make it workable. Additionally, this introduces a management issue. In the large corporations the guys who manage SRM may not necessarily be the guys who manage the storage layer. So a great deal of liaising, and sometimes cajoling, would have to take place to make these two teams speak and interact with each other effectively.
