VMware: VVol Replication Test-Failover with Power CLI 6.5.1


I recently had the opportunity to work with one of our valued VVol Partners, HPE, on automating VVol replication workflows.  HPE is a VVol design partner and one of the few partners to deliver Day 1 support for VASA 3, including array-based replication.

Today I’m very pleased to offer a guest article from Eric Siebert, HPE Solutions Marketing Manager and our very dear colleague on the VVol partnership.

VMware introduced support for array-based replication of Virtual Volumes (VVols) as part of vSphere 6.5. This new ability provides users with array-based BC/DR capabilities that can be managed via VMware’s Storage Policy Based Management (SPBM) system that is built into vSphere.

To support VVol replication operations today, there is no native integration with automation products such as Site Recovery Manager (SRM) and vRealize Orchestrator. Instead VMware developed PowerCLI cmdlets as part of the vSphere 6.5 release so common BC/DR operations such as failover and recovery can be scripted as needed. However the initial release of PowerCLI with vSphere 6.5 was missing the key capability to perform a test failover of VVol based VMs.
