The information that follows describes how to use VMware Site Recovery Manager™ with other VMware products to configure a disaster-recovery solution for Workspace ONE Access in an on-premises environment.

About Disaster Recovery for Workspace ONE Access

A disaster-recovery deployment requires a protected site and a recovery site. The recommended approach to setting up disaster recovery for Workspace ONE Access is to leverage Site Recovery Manager.

Site Recovery Manager is a disaster-recovery automation software application that provides policy-based management, non-disruptive testing, and automated orchestration.

To protect your Workspace ONE Access deployment, Site Recovery Manager automates every aspect of running a disaster recovery plan to expedite the recovery process and eliminate the risks involved in using a manual process.

The Amount of Downtime to Expect

Site Recovery Manager allows Workspace ONE Access to operate from the recovery site. If a failover occurs, the Recovery Time Objective (RTO) depends on several factors, such as network bandwidth across sites, Site Recovery Manager architecture, and the replication strategy you deploy. To estimate the amount of downtime, consider details such as how long virtual machines and services take to start. These factors combined define the RTO.

See Additional VMware Documentation

Much of the information that follows about using Site Recovery Manager to configure a disaster-recovery solution for Workspace ONE Access points to other VMware documentation, such as the VMware Site Recovery Manager documentation.

For information about how to install and configure Site Recovery Manager and the different technologies, such as the replication technologies, see VMware Site Recovery Manager Installation and Configuration, VMware Site Recovery Manager Administration and, if you are using VMware vSphere Replication, VMware vSphere Replication Administration.
