Site Recovery Manager Server operates as an extension to the vCenter Server at a site. Site Recovery Manager is compatible with other VMware solutions, and with third-party software.

You can run other VMware solutions such as vCenter Update Manager, vCenter Server Heartbeat, VMware Fault Tolerance, vSphere Storage vMotion, vSphere Storage DRS, and vCenter CapacityIQ in deployments that you protect using Site Recovery Manager. Use caution before you connect other VMware solutions to the vCenter Server instance to which the Site Recovery Manager Server is connected. Connecting other VMware solutions to the same vCenter Server instance as Site Recovery Manager might cause problems when you upgrade Site Recovery Manager or vSphere. Check the compatibility and interoperability of the versions of these solutions with your version of Site Recovery Manager by consulting VMware Product Interoperability Matrixes.
