Since we were discussing migration yesterday, let me continue to provide you with information about one of the exciting services used in conjunction with VMware, AWS Site Recovery.
AWS Site Recovery is a disaster recovery service that allows you to replicate your on-premises VMware environments to the AWS cloud. This service can help organizations to protect their critical workloads and ensure business continuity in case of an on-premise data center failure. Here is a step-by-step guide to setting up AWS Site Recovery:
Begin by creating a replication plan in the AWS Management Console. This will define the resources that you want to replicate and the recovery settings that you want to use.
Next, install the AWS Site Recovery connector on your on-premises VMware environment. This connector will establish a secure connection between your on-premises environment and the AWS cloud, and will allow you to replicate your data.
Once the connector is installed, you can then begin replicating your data to the AWS cloud. This can be done by selecting the resources that you want to replicate and starting the replication process.
After the data is replicated, you can then test your disaster recovery plan to ensure that it is working properly. This can be done by launching a test recovery and verifying that your data is being replicated correctly.
Finally, once your disaster recovery plan is tested and verified, you can then activate it in the event of a disaster. This will allow you to quickly failover to the AWS cloud and minimize the impact of a data center failure.
AWS Site Recovery is a powerful tool for organizations that want to protect their critical workloads, minimize downtime and ensure business continuity in case of an on-premise data center failure. It is easy to set up and use, and it can help you ensure that your data is safe and available even in the event of a disaster.
