The vRealize Orchestrator plug-in for vSphere Replication extends automation capabilities for certain vSphere Replication operations.

The vSphere Replication plug-in includes vRealize Orchestrator actions, workflows, policy templates to trigger actions when certain events occur, and scripting objects to expose selected elements of the vSphere Replication API to workflows. With the plug-in you can automate the configuration of replication for virtual machines, run migrations and real recoveries, manage local and remote site, and synchronize virtual machine data.

The plug-in provides actions and workflows to configure and manage replications:

  • Configure outgoing replication for virtual machines to target vCenter Server or cloud site

  • Configure incoming replication for virtual machines from target vCenter Server or cloud site

  • Pause, resume or stop outgoing replication for virtual machines to target vCenter Server or cloud site

  • Pause, resume or stop incoming replication for virtual machines from target vCenter Server or cloud site

The plug-in provides actions and workflows to run recovery:

  • Run planned migration to or from target cloud site

  • Run real recovery to or from target cloud site

  • Run test clean to and from target cloud site

  • Run test recovery to and from target cloud site

The plug-in provides actions and workflows to manage remote sites:

  • Pair local site with target vCenter Server or cloud site

  • Register standalone organization, cloud or vCenter Server site

  • Unregister standalone organization, cloud or vCenter Server site

The plug-in provides actions and workflows to synchronize virtual machine data:

  • Full synchronization to target vCenter Server or cloud site

  • Offline synchronization to or from target cloud site

  • Offline synchronization to target vCenter Server site

  • Synchronize replication to or from target cloud site

  • Synchronize replication to target vCenter Server site
