About VMware vCloud Availability

The VMware vCloud Availability solution introduces a unified architecture for disaster recovery and migration capabilities. It enables service providers and their tenants to migrate and protect VMs and vApps from the following sites.

  • On-premises vCenter Server site to a vCloud Director site.

  • vCloud Director site to an on-premises vCenter Server site.

  • One vCloud Director site to another vCloud Director site.

In a single cloud environment, vCloud Availability Replicator, vCloud Availability Replication Manager, vCloud Availability vApp Replication Manager, and vCloud Availability Tunnel operate together to support replication management using the vCloud Availability Service Provider Portal, secure communication, and storage of the replicated data. Each service provider can support recovery for multiple customer environments that can scale to handle increasing loads for each tenant, and for multiple tenants.

In an on-premises environment, vCloud Availability Replicator and pre-configured vCloud Availability Tunnel support replication management using the vCloud Availability plugin in the vSphere Client, and the dedicated to tenants vCloud Availability Portal.
