vSphere replication in a multi-site topology

Jump to solution

I know SRM supports multi-site topologies, but what about vSphere Replication? Would it support a three (or more) site topology where:

  • Virtual Machines at Site A are protected at Site B

  • Virtual Machines at Site B are protected at Site C

  • Virtual Machines at Site C are protected at Site A

  • pastedImage_4.png

would you just use multiple vSphere Replication servers?

Thanks

This is supported for VR as well. Yes, you would deploy a VR server (additional appliances as scale requires) to each site.

vSphere replication can replicate to multiple sites, irrespective of SRM setup, SRM needs separate instance of  SRM server to protect different site. In VR you can use to same instance to pair to multiple sites, you will need additional VR server only if the total number of replication on a node is more than 200 ( including incoming and outgoing replication )

You can see multi-site VR details in the admin guide here: How vSphere Replication Works (at the bottom of the page it shows multiple sites replicating to single site)
