VMware vCloud Availability solution is composed of services that can coexist in the same virtual appliance or in dedicated appliances.
|vCloud Availability Replicator||Exposes the low-level HBR primitives as REST APIs.|
|vCloud Availability Replication Manager||A management service operating on the vCenter Server level. It understands the vCenter Server level concepts for starting the replication workflow for the virtual machines.|
|vCloud Availability vApp Replication Manager with embedded vCloud Availability Portal||Provides the main interface for the cloud and on-prem replication operations. It understands the vCloud Director level concepts and works with vApps and virtual machines.
The embedded vCloud Availability Portal provides tenants (vCloud Availability Portal) and service providers (vCloud Availability Service Provider Portal) with a graphic user interface to facilitate the management of the VMware vCloud Availability solution. It also provides overall system and workload information.
|vSphere Replication Server and vSphere Replication Filter||The replication server receives and records delta information for each replicated virtual machine. During the cloud-to-cloud replication, delta information is sent from one ESXi host to another ESXi host.|
|vCloud Availability Tunnel||Simplifies provider networking setup by channeling all incoming and outgoing traffic for a site through a single point - the vCloud Availability Tunnel appliance. The traffic is both management and monitoring for the replication data (LWD traffic).|
|Lightweight Delta Protocol Service(LWD Proxy)||The proprietary replication protocol service ensures that each incoming replication data stream comes only from the authorized source LWD Proxy instance, and each outgoing replication data stream goes only to an authorized destination LWD Proxy instance.|
|vCloud Director||With the vCloud Director solution service providers can build secure, multi-tenant private clouds by pooling infrastructure resources into virtual data centers and exposing them to users through Web-based portals and programmatic interfaces as fully automated, catalog-based services.|
|VMware Platform Services Controller®||The Platform Services Controller provides common infrastructure services to the vSphere environment. Services include licensing, certificate management, and authentication with VMware vCenter® Single Sign-On.|
The VMware vCloud Availability services provide a management interface for configuration and administration purposes.
You perform initial configuration of VMware vCloud Availability services by using the vCloud Availability Replication Manager, vCloud Availability Replicator, and vCloud Availability vApp Replication Manager management interfaces.
You cannot access the vCloud Availability Portal before finishing the initial VMware vCloud Availability configuration.
