Site Recovery Manager (SRM) is the industry-leading disaster recovery (DR) management solution, designed to minimize downtime in case of a disaster. It provides policy-based management, automated orchestration, and non-disruptive testing of centralized recovery plans. It is designed for virtual machines and scalable to manage all applications in a vSphere environment.SRM automates and orchestrates failover and failback, ensuring minimal downtime in a disaster. Built-in non-disruptive testing ensures your recovery time objectives are met.

Overall, SRM simplifies management through automation, ensures fast and highly predictable recovery times, and minimizes the total cost of ownership. SRM addresses multiple use cases, such as disaster recovery, disaster avoidance, planned data center migrations, site-level load balancing or even application maintenance testing.

Benefits of Site Recovery Manager

  • Reliable Disaster Recovery Performance
  • Perform frequent, non-disruptive testing to ensure your RTOs are predictable and meet requirements.

  • Disaster Recovery as-a-Service (DRaaS)
  • Get on-demand site protection as a service across a common, vSphere-based operating environment with Site Recovery for VMC on AWS.

  • Simple, Policy-Based Management
  • Use policy-driven automation to protect thousands of virtual machines easily using centralized recovery plans managed from the vSphere Web Client.

Reduce TCO

Use automation to reduce disaster recovery operational expenses and to streamline time-consuming DR audits with system-generated failover reporting.

  • Planned migration
  • The orderly evacuation of virtual machines from the protected site to the recovery site. Planned Migration prevents data loss when migrating workloads in an orderly fashion. For planned migration to succeed, both sites must be running and fully functioning.

  • Disaster recovery
  • Similar to planned migration except that disaster recovery does not require that both sites be up and running, for example if the protected site goes offline unexpectedly. During a disaster recovery operation, failure of operations on the protected site are reported but otherwise ignored.

Site Recovery Manager

  • At the protected site, Site Recovery Manager shuts down virtual machines cleanly, if the protected site is still running.
  • Site Recovery Manager powers on the replicated virtual machines at the recoverysite according to a recovery plan.
  • A recovery plan specifies the order in which virtual machines start up on the recovery site. A recovery plan specifies network parameters, such as IP addresses, and can contain user-specified scripts that Site Recovery Manager can run to perform custom recovery actions.
  • Site Recovery Manager lets you test recovery plans. You conduct tests by using a temporary copy of the replicated data in a way that does not disrupt ongoing operations at either site.
