    vSphere Replication - Isolated networks

    VMwaretester001 Novice

      Hello All,

       

      I am in the process of putting a vSphere replication system together and I have seen a couple of blogs with people saying that they are isolating their vSphere replication traffic from all of there normal vmware traffic.

       

      Is this a normal way of setting vSphere replication up? Or is this a people playing around and then bloging about it?

       

      Thanks for the help!

          For large Enterprise installations this can be the way to go by using a combination of dedicated TCP/IP stacks and host uplinks. Steering traffic is also the only option for some enterprises that have to route that traffic across a separate fibre link to their remote site. Let your own requirements dictate how you design your replication network, not the requirements set fourth in someone else's blog article.
