vSphere 6.0 Replication – Failover

Be sure to visit parts 1, 2, and 3: vSphere 6.0 Replication – Installation vSphere 6.0 Replication – Configuration vSphere 6.0 Replication – VM Replication Now that everything has been up and replicating for a while, it’s time to do a failover.  As you can see, we even have our multiple points in time. Failing over a virtual machine with vSphere Replication is quite easy.  At the DR site, under vSphere Replication, simply right click on the VM, and choose Recovery. Here, we have 2 options: Synchronize recent changes – this[…]

Replication Roundup – Kickoff

  Since replication is a staple to any DR scenario, I wanted to cover various replication products installation, and failover procedures.
