  • 1.  Replication between two sites with Essential Kit Plus

    Posted Oct 08, 2015 02:55 PM

    Hi All,

    someone can confirm that the following scenario is possible?

    One Essential Kit Plus ----------Replication--------- Another one Essential Kit Plus
    3 Hosts                                                                      Other 3 Hosts

    In other words : is it possible to replicate VMs between two sites each one managed by a single Essential Kit Plus (outside the boundary of the VC)?

    I'm pretty sure that is correct, but I want to be sure.

    Thank you guys!

    Alex

    Yes. The requirements for VR are:

    - Essentials plus licensing or higher

    - vCenter

    You can definitely replicate between datastores within the same vCenter

    Hi Khalsa,

    and between different VCenter?

    I.E.

    Site 1                                                                      Site 2

    Essential Kit Plus 1-----------REPLICATION-----------Essential Kit Plus 2

    VCenter  1                                                                VCenter 2

    Host1                                                                      Host2

    Thank you,

    Alessandro

    Yes, you can use vSphere Replication between vCenters as well. To do that you would want to deploy VR appliances to each vCenter and then connect them. How to do this is outlined in the VR install and config, and administration docs.

    BTW my first name is GS.

    Cheers!
