VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager (SRM) 4.0 provides business continuity and disaster recovery protection for virtual environments. Protection can extend from individual replicated datastores to an entire virtual site. In a Site Recovery Manager environment, there are two sites involved - a protected site and a recovery site. Protection groups1 that contain protected virtual machines are configured on the protected site and can be recovered by executing the recovery plans on the recovery site. Site Recovery Manager leverages array-based replication between a protected site and a recovery site. The workflow that is built into Site Recovery Manager automatically discovers datastores setup for replication between the protected and recovery sites.
