To replicate vSphere workloads between an on-premises vCenter Server instance and a provider cloud site backed by VMware Cloud Director, in the tenant vCenter Server deploy a VMware Cloud Director Availability On-Premises Appliance instance and during deployment select the On-Premises to Cloud Director Replication Appliance role then pair it with the provider site.

  • For on-premises replication with cloud sites backed by VMware Cloud Director, install and configure VMware Cloud Director Availability in the on-premises vCenter Server instance by following this current chapter.
  • Alternatively, for vSphere DR and migration between vCenter Server sites, to install and configure VMware Cloud Director Availability as a new deployment see the Installing and Configuring an On-Premises to Cloud Director Replication Appliance chapter.
