VMware offers a Disaster Recovery service, which you can purchase, that lets you protect your workloads from a disaster or disruptive event by replicating them to vCloud Air. You can manage some vCloud Air Disaster Recovery Service tasks from the vCloud Air plug-in.

This user guide provides a brief overview of the Disaster Recovery Service and describes the tasks that you can perform in the vCloud Air plug-in. It does not provide detailed information about the service or about tasks that you can perform in vSphere Replication or the vCloud Air portal.
