Example text

The Business Copy license is only used when snapshots are created while testing an SRM Recovery Plan. The Continuous Access license enables the replication of what HP rather confusingly calls vdisks in the storage groups. Caveat #3: Read the Manual Storage management systems have lots of “containers” which hold other containers and so on. This means the system can be very flexibly managed. You can think of this as being a bit like Microsoft’s rich and varied group structure options in Active Directory.

As with all forms of automation, it’s sometimes difficult to see the benefits of a technology if you have not experienced what life was like before its onset. I also want at this stage to make it clear what SRM is capable of and what its technical remit is. It’s not uncommon for VMware customers to look at other technologies such as vMotion and Fault Tolerance (FT) and attempt to construct a disaster recovery (DR) use case around them. While that is entirely plausible, care must be taken to build solutions that use technologies in ways that have not been tested or are not supported by VMware.

But generally I am skeptical about this approach. I subscribe to the view that you should use the right tools for the right job; never use a wrench to do the work of a hammer. From its very inception and design you will discover flaws and problems—because you are using a tool for a purpose for which it was never designed. For me, P2V is P2V; it isn’t about DR, although it can be reengineered to do this task. I guess the proof is in the quality of the reengineering. In the ideal VMware world, every workload would be virtualized.
