Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager(SCVMM) automates the complete end to end discovery and integration to leverage replication capabilities provided by our enterprise storage partners using SMI-S. Windows Server provides native support for SMIS providers that SCVMM can utilize. Building on top of SCVMM primitives, Azure Site Recovery provides the end to end disaster recovery and orchestration solution automating the creation and management of all target objects including storage and compute. Microsoft is working with multiple storage partners to deliver this functionality: EMC, NetApp, HP, Hitachi, IBM, Huawei, Dell Compellent and Fujitsu.

Learning Objectives

Understand what ASR Disaster Recovery solution means – what is Planned Failover, Unplanned Failover, Test Failover, etc. Learn how SMIS provides the primitives in Replication Services profile
Understand how SCVMM leverages the replication discovery and management profile using the developers guide distributed to partners. This includes the changes made in the Replication Services
Deep dive into Virtual Machine Manager leveraging Pass Through service in Windows Server 2012 R2 to discover and manage replication capabilities. Capabilities include discovery, replica provisioning
Understand how ASR orchestrates the replication automation and learn how replications groups enable multiple virtual machines to be protected and replicated together
