Site Protection and Recovery for VMware Cloud Foundation provides step-by-step instructions for adapting a dual-region software-defined data center (SDDC), deployed on top of VMware Cloud Foundation, to provide disaster recovery of the SDDC management components.
Use VMware Site Recovery Manager™ and VMware vSphere®Replication™ to perform site protection and recovery of VMware vRealize ®Automation™ with embedded VMware vRealize®Orchestrator™, VMware vRealize®Operations Manager™ analytics cluster, and VMware vRealize®Suite Lifecycle Manager™.
Deployment and configuration of vRealize Automation, vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager, and vRealize Operations Manager are out of scope for this document and must be configured separately.
