How it works:
With VMware vSphere replication enabled, Vembu VMBackup ensures business continuity and high availability by offering failover and failback as DR options. During disaster scenarios, users can failover the replicated VMs to get auto-started on DR host and the failover can be either temporary or permanent based on scenario. Later, failback can be achieved to primary host or to a different host. VMware replication allows user to map production host network and IP Address with the DR host network.
Steps to configure VMware Replication:
- Select primary host/virtual machines to be replicated
- Configure replication job. (i.e) Job Scheduling, configuring DR hosts and network mapping etc.
- Initiate the replication job
