Download Extrasphere 2.0 – Tools for Managing VM Data in VMware vSphere Environments
Extrasphere is a set of services for managing VM data in vSphere environments, including VM migration, HotMirror (replication with zero RPO) and HotClone features.
The purpose of this feature is to get a mirror (replica) virtual machine on the same or different ESXi 5.5+ host for the protected machine. It can be used with zero RPO with fast shared target datastore. In case of long response from target datastore it is possible to set non-zero RPO to keep high VM performance.
Based on HotMirror feature allows user to create clone of running VM. It makes failover right after the initial synchronization phase.
Extrasphere provides unique technology of VM disks and configuration migration for and between standalone VMware ESXi 5.0+ host with or without shared storage. The migration of VM disks is totally downtime-free, while for configuration migration a very short pause of VM is required.
Free ESXi Support
The support of free ESXi is a key feature of Extrasphere.
