To support disaster recovery (DR) in the SDDC, you protect vRealize Operations Manager and vRealize Automation by using vCenter Site Recovery Manager and VMware vSphere Replication. When failing over to a recovery region, these management applications continue the delivery of operations management, and cloud platform management functionality.
The SDDC disaster recovery design includes two locations: Region A and Region B.
Protected Region A in San Francisco
Region A contains the management stack virtual machine workloads that are being protected and is referred to as the protected region in this document.
Recovery Region B in Los Angeles
Region B provides an environment to host virtual machines from the protected region in the case of a disaster and is referred to as the recovery region.
Site Recovery Manager can automate the setup and execution of disaster recovery plans between these two regions.
A region in the VMware Validated Design is equivalent to the site construct in Site Recovery Manager.
