Version 2

    NSX can be used with a Disaster Recovery (DR) orchestration tool such as VMware’s Site Recovery Manager (SRM) for an Enhanced Disaster Recovery solution that solves many of the problems related to traditional Disaster Recovery solutions. Checkout this whitepaper on recovering NSX backed data centers with SRM.
