Synopses & Reviews
The Complete, Hands-On Guide to Installing and Configuring VMware Site Recovery Manager 5.0
Administering VMware Site Recovery Manager 5.0 is the complete, technical, hands-on guide to VMware Site Recovery Manager (SRM) 5.0 installation and configuration for experienced VMware professionals.
VMware forum moderator and vExpert Mike Laverick fully explains SRM 5.0’s failover/failback procedures, walks readers through configuring storage replication with hardware from several leading suppliers, and shows how to efficiently implement fast, automated, centralized disaster recovery. Drawing on his extensive experience with SRM and vSphere, Laverick identifies common pitfalls and errors, explains why they occur, and shows exactly how to fix them.
Fully up to date for SRM 5.0, this book delivers “in-the-trenches” technical knowledge you won’t find anywhere else, including expert guidance for utilizing SRM 5.0’s advanced new vSphere Replication (VR).
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 5.0 is 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.
