You deploy and configure vSphere Replication to enable replication of critical virtual machine data from Region A to Region B for failover by using Site Recovery Manager in the cases of disaster or planned migration.
Prerequisites for the vSphere Replication Deployment for VMware Cloud Foundation in Region A To deploy a new vSphere Replication virtual appliance, your environment must satisfy certain hardware and software requirements.
Deploy vSphere Replication for VMware Cloud Foundation in Region A Deploy vSphere Replication to enable replication of virtual machines between the protected and the recovery regions.
Deploy vSphere Replication for VMware Cloud Foundation in Region B After you deploy vSphere Replication in Region A, deploy it in Region B to complete the support for replication of virtual machines between the two regions.
Connect the vSphere Replication Instances for VMware Cloud Foundation To use vSphere Replication between Region A and Region B, you must configure a connection between the two vSphere Replication appliances because each region is managed by a different vCenter Server instance.
Isolate Network Traffic of vSphere Replication for VMware Cloud Foundation vSphere Replication can consume a lot of bandwidth during initial replication, and when virtual machines are added or destroyed. To avoid network problems in the data center, isolate replication traffic from other network traffic. Isolating the vSphere Replication traffic also enhances network performance in the data center by reducing the impact of this traffic on other traffic types.
