VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager (SRM) is an extension to VMware vCenter Server that delivers a business continuity and disaster recovery solution that helps you plan, test, and run the recovery of vCenter Server virtual machines. SRM can discover and manage replicated datastores, and automate migration of inventory from one vCenter Server instance to another.

This book is intended for SRM administrators who are familiar with vSphere and its replication technologies, such as host-based replication and replicated datastores. This solution serves the needs of administrators who want to configure protection for their vSphere inventory. It might also be appropriate for users who need to add virtual machines to a protected inventory or to verify that an existing inventory is properly configured for use with SRM.
