Organizations can use VMware Site Recovery Manager (SRM) along with vSphere Replication. This on-demand Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) solution can be enabled as an add-on from the VMware Cloud on AWS UI.

Once the add-on service is enabled, a virtual appliance must be deployed in the on-premises environment for the sites to be paired and replication of virtual machines to begin. With this solution, organizations can protect their on-premises environment and utilize VMware Cloud on AWS as the disaster recovery site instead of having to invest in a separate, physical data center for disaster recovery.
