As businesses deepen their dependency on VMware and virtualized infrastructure, they are increasingly recognizing an urgent need to update and automate their business continuity plans to reflect this massive shift. One product can help them do so: VMware Site Recovery Manager 5.0. Administering VMware Site Recovery Manager 5.0is a complete guide to using SRM 5.0 with both VMware and third-party products. Internationally respected VMware instructor Mike Laverick is singularly well-qualified to write this book: he has published books on SRM 1.0 and 4.0, and hosts one of the world's most successful VMware tutorial sites. In this practical, technical book, he covers every aspect of SRM installation, configuration, and usage. Laverick walks step-by-step through setting up the product, thoroughly covering both failover and fallback processes. He offers candid insights into SRM 5.0's strengths and weaknesses, and identifies common problems - showing why they happen, how to avoid them, and how to quickly resolve them. Fully up-to-date for SRM 5.0, this book contains especially detailed coverage of VMware's powerful new Host-Based Replication (HBR) feature. Laverick also covers setup and configuration of storage replication from key VMware partners, including Dell, EMC, NetApp, and HP - presenting techniques that are essential for Site Recovery Manager to function.
