Now, corporations truly understand that it’s not a matter of if a disaster will occur, but when. Hurricane Katrina is one example of a major disaster that has forced companies to pause and reevaluate their Disaster Recovery strategy. Virtualization technologies have created an affordable DR approach, yielding greater environment flexibility and mobility. However, many manual steps must still be taken to recover or failover an entire IT environment. VMware’s Site Recovery Manager (SRM) can automate most of those manual steps to provide a repeatable, reportable and recoverable solution to complement your corporate DR plan. This presentation will focus on the benefits of SRM and key points of consideration when looking to automate your DR steps.
