Manage disaster recovery plans
Site Recovery Manager allows organizations to create, update and document recovery plans as an integrated part of managing their VMware virtual environment. Traditional solutions for disaster recovery rely on documenting all of the steps and resources required for failover in runbooks that are difficult or impossible to keep accurate and up-to-date. With Site Recovery Manager, the steps and resources that make up the failover process are managed directly from VMware vCenter Server.
Perform non-disruptive tests of failover and recovery
Using Site Recovery Manager, organizations can execute automated tests of their recovery plans without disrupting their environment. Site Recovery Manager makes it easy to create an isolated environment for testing while leveraging the recovery plan that would be used in an actual failover.
Automate failover and recovery
Site Recovery Manager makes it possible to automate execution of recovery plans, eliminating many of the slow and unreliable manual processes common in traditional disaster recovery. At the same time, Site Recovery Manager ensures that the recovery process is executed as intended.
