VMware Site Recovery is an extension to VMware vCenter Server that delivers a business continuity and disaster recovery solution that helps you plan, test, and run the recovery of vCenter Server virtual machines. VMware Site Recovery uses the host-based replication feature of vSphere Replication and the orchestration of Site Recovery Manager.

Intended Audience

This book is intended for VMware Site Recovery administrators who are familiar with vSphere and its replication technologies, such as host-based replication and replicated datastores. This solution serves the needs of administrators who want to configure protection for their vSphere inventory. It might also be appropriate for users who need to add virtual machines to a protected inventory or to verify that an existing inventory is properly configured for use with Site Recovery Manager.
