ABSTRACT:

Virtual machine (VM) disaster recovery (DR) is a multifaceted activity that fails over a VM from a primary site to a remote location. There are a few approaches to facilitating disaster recovery in a virtual machine environment: VMware Inc. introduced its vCenter Site Recovery Manager (SRM) software that automates virtual machine failover.

Alternatively, there are geographically disbursed clustering (geoclustering) services that support automatic failover, but can also recover more than just VMs. There are also standard data protection packages available that support varying levels of VM DR. While these packages are more manual than Site Recovery Manager or geoclustering, they cost substantially less.

Learn about the various approaches to virtual machine disaster recovery in this tutorial.
