Sample text

In terms of the initial setup, I will deliberately keep it simple, starting with a single LUN/volume replicated to another array. However, later on I will change the configuration so that I have multiple LUNs/volumes with virtual machines that have virtual disks on those LUNs. Clearly, managing replication frequency will be important. If we have multiple VMDK files on multiple LUNs/volumes, the parts of the VM could easily become unsynchronized or even missed altogether in the replication strategy, thus creating half-baked, half-complete VMs at the DR location.

I’ve chosen not to include a change-log-style list of every little modification. Instead, I look at new features that might sway a customer or organization into adopting SRM. These changes address flaws or limitations in the previous product that may have made adopting SRM difficult in the past. vSphere 5 Compatibility This might seem like a small matter, but when vSphere 5 was released some of the advanced management systems were quickly compatible with the new platform—a situation that didn’t happen with vSphere 4.

However, by the end of 2008 this support changed. This was significant to EMC customers because of the practical limits imposed by synchronous replication. Although synchronous replication is highly desirable, it is frequently limited by the distance between the Protected and Recovery Sites. In short, the Recovery Site is perhaps too close to the Protected Site to be regarded as a true DR location. 5–280 miles); however, in practice the real-world distances can be as small as 50–60 kilometers (31–37 miles).
