Jump to solution

Is there any news on support for the VNXe in VMWare Site Recovery Manager 5.0?

The timeline was Q4 2011.

THNX.

VNXe currently does not support VMware Site Recovery Manager (SRM).  SRM leverages the data replication capabilities of the underlying storage system through an interface called Site Recovery Adapter (SRA). 

SRA for File/NFS support for VNXe was originally planned for the MR2 release.  Unfortunately, this did not make it into the MR2 release (Q1'12),

We are targeting Q4'2012 for SRM/SRA NFS support for VNXe.

I assume this post is referring to SRA's being released for VNXe devices?

You probably already know this but as an interim solution SRM 5 offer vSphere Replication. Granted its not as integrated as using SRA's but I do have a couple of customers who are pleased with the functionality this is giving them. Just thought I'd mention it.

The SRA for VNXe will be NFS only in MR2. I just wanted to mention that also.

Thanks,

When you say vSphere replication, is that a new functionality of VMware or it will still ride the replication capability of the storage? Also, I'm new to SRM and SRA, will it be possible for you to discuss it further?

Hello,

I checked with VNXe Product Management to confirm status.  We are targeting 2H2012 for VMware Site Recovery Manager support.  The SRA is the Site Recovery Adapter that EMC creates to allow customers to manage the array-replication failover and failback operations. 

I hope this clarifies the status for you.

Kind Regards

Graeme

Guys, we really need SRM support...this is getting silly.

Yes the replication is VMware vSphere 5 / SRM 5 enabled and is independant of the array. Got this working well for a few customers but the SRA will simplify things.
