VMware releases new version of disaster recovery manager

Comes with many-to-one failover and expanded storage support

By CBR Staff Writer

VMware has released vCenter Site Recovery Manager 4, which provides automated disaster recovery for virtual environments with added support for NFS based storage replication, compatibility with vSphere 4, and simplified ‘many-to-one’ failover using shared recovery sites.

According to VMware, vCenter Site Recovery Manager addresses the challenges of disasters in the datacentre caused by earthquakes, power outages, or other unexpected events that can result in downtime for business critical applications by centralising management of recovery plans and automating the testing and recovery process.

The company said the new version of vCenter Site Recovery Manager provides vSphere 4 support including fault tolerance for performance and protection of applications; and expanded storage support which allows users to leverage iSCSI, fiber channel, and NFS storage and replication. In addition, it also offers protection for multiple production sites with automated failover into a single, shared recovery site.

Raghu Raghuram, vice president and general manager of server business unit at VMware, said: VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager 4 dramatically simplifies the disaster recovery process for customers so they can meet demanding business needs for disaster recovery, including regulatory compliance issues.

“Now with many-to-one failover and expanded storage support, more customers can take advantage of low-cost disaster recovery and gain peace of mind that their data is safe in the event of a disaster.
