Reverse replication of virtual machines that you have previously recovered is available by using vSphere Replication.

Once you have restored your on-premises data center, after a maintenance procedure or a disaster, you can reverse replicate the virtual machines which were recovered on vCloud Air. In vSphere Replication, you can configure reverse replication that will repoint the replication of the virtual machines running on vCloud Air back to your on-premises vSphere environment. Reverse replication provides you with the ability to restore your services from the cloud back to your on-premises data center.


To use reverse replication you must power-off the virtual machine before you copy it. You can start multiple copies simultaneously and run them in parallel.
