SolidFire Launches SSA Native Integration With VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager

With this announcement, SolidFire offers VMware customers an integration to perform site-to-site failover, failback, migration and testing. The SRA exposes and highlights SolidFire’s ability to replicate from one or two storage clusters at the protected site to one or two storage clusters at the recovery site – all in the same protection group.

SRA defines the interface between SRM and the replicated storage arrays. It provides an interface for SRM to communicate with the storage arrays and execute supported workflows. Administrators can manage and configure replication of VMs hosted on SolidFire storage clusters. SRA provides a user-friendly interface to facilitate migration of storage arrays for planned and DR between the protected and recovery sites.

SRA allows organizations to:

  • Provision and manage storage and replication policies at the VM level
  • Set-up centralized recovery plans in minutes
  • Enable individual tenants to provision disaster protection through pre-defined policies
  • Perform orchestration of site failover, planned migrations and failback with a click
  • Perform testing of recovery plans in an isolated network to avoid impacting production applications
  • Test recovery plan as frequently as needed without disruption to ensure predictability of RTO and to simplify regulatory compliance

SRM is an extension to VMware vCenter Server that delivers a DR solution that provides orchestration and non-disruptive testing of centralized recovery plans for all virtualized applications. It can discover and manage replicated datastores and automate migration of inventory between vCenter Server instances.
