vSphere Replication

Product Overview

VMware vSphere Replication is an extension to VMware vCenter Server that provides hypervisor-based virtual machine replication and recovery.

vSphere Replication replaces storage-based replication. It protects virtual machines from partial or complete site failures by replicating the virtual machines from a primary site to a secondary site.

vSphere Replication provides several benefits as compared to storage-based replication.

  • Data protection at lower cost per virtual machine.
  • A replication solution that allows flexibility in storage vendor selection at the primary and secondary sites.
  • Overall lower cost per replication.
