Disaster Recovery for Virtualized Business Critical Applications (Part 1 of 3)
The purpose of the exercise was to demonstrate use cases for disaster recovery of real business critical applications (BCA) leveraging VMware solutions such as VMWare Site Recovery Manager (SRM). Techniques to protect against disaster for common business critical applications such as Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SQL Server, SAP and Oracle Databases are discussed.
Some Background on Site Recovery Manager: (SRM)
With the advent of virtualization and the concept of encapsulation of virtual machines, replicating entire business critical workloads have been greatly simplified. Virtual machines are represented as a set of files that can be replicated to the recovery site easily and re-instantiated on different hardware. VMware SRM leverages the unique aspects of virtual machines combined with replication management and workflows to automate disaster recovery for BCA.
