Hi, we're implementing SRM on existing infrastructure. Client has Storage Array on protected site using Netapp, then the recovery site will use Dell Compellent. Is SRM will work with different Brand of Storage?
this will work only if you use vSphere Replication to replicate VMs from a datastore provided by NetApp to a datastore provided by Dell Compellent. Protocols can be different.
To use array based replication one needs to have storage arrays from the same vendor and the same make (at least typically, but with some exceptions)
Thank you for your help, I've just confirmed from my client that we will use vSphere Replication, not Array Based Replication.
Well in that case, It ideally does not matter which storage is being used in either sites as vSphere Replication uses host based replication mechanism.
You can certainly go ahead with the implementation.
You will implemation SRM + vSphre Replication.
