A well-documented and well-tested recovery plan is essential to quickly returning a cluster to a working state.

The choice of replication type is critical when configuring a virtual machine for disaster recovery. Consider the Recovery Point Objective (RPO), the Recovery Time Objective (RTO), and the cost and scalability when deciding on a replication type.

In a disaster recovery scenario, sometimes you cannot restore to the same site if the primary site is fully down. But based on the option you choose, some manual steps are required to fully restore and return the vRealize Log Insight cluster to a running state.

Unless the vRealize Log Insight cluster is fully down and inaccessible, verify that the cluster instances are powered off before restoring the cluster to a new site.

During an outage or disaster, recover the vRealize Log Insight cluster as soon as possible.
