If you deploy vSphere Replication as your replication-technology type, enable network compression for the vSphere Replication data.

Configure this specific setting when you configure vSphere Replication with Site Recovery Manager. The following instructions are for 8.2, but might also be applicable to other versions. See Site Recovery Manager Administration and VMware vSphere Replication Administration.

Enabling network compression speeds up the replication process across vCenter Server instances.


  • To enable network compression, when you configure vSphere Replication, select the Enable network compression for VR data check box.
