Ideally, you have been working with VMware vSphere for some time—perhaps you have attended an authorized course in vSphere 4 such as the “Install, Configure and Manage” class, or even the “Fast Track” class. On top of this, perhaps you have pursued VMware Certified Professional (VCP) certification. So, what am I getting at? This is not a dummy’s or idiot’s guide to SRM. You are going to need some background, or at least read my other guides or books, to get up to speed. Apart from that, I will be gentle with you—assuming that you have forgotten some of the material from those courses, such as VMFS metadata, UUIDs, and VMFS resignaturing, and that you just have a passing understanding of storage replication.

You should really factor this issue into your recovery time objectives. The first thing to ensure in your DR plan is that you have an effective backup and restore strategy to handle possible data corruption and virus attacks. ” Principles of Storage Management and Replication In Chapter 2, Getting Started with Dell EqualLogic Replication, I will document in detail a series of different storage systems. Before I do that, I want to write very briefly and generically about how the vendors handle storage management, and how they commonly manage duplication of data from one location to another.
