In our organization We have more than 20 VM's which is running on Windows 2008 Hyper V.
Now my organization wants to make Far DR site to another city.They are planning to deploy Windows 2012 in Far DR Site and they also want
this 20 VM's should replicate in Far DR Site.
E.g:- somethings happen in DC and all this 20 VM's should be up on Far DR Site within minute.
How do we make this possible.Pls Help on this.

Ensure that you will have powerful datalink between the sites: it should be >1Gbps.

If you still have questions, port specific questions.
You will need Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V in both sites. Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V does not have a replication capability.

Never said replication couldn't be done with third party tools. What I DID say was that Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V does not have a replication capability. If it did have such a capability, I am very surprised that Microsoft calls Hyper-V Replica a new feature of 2012.
Totally agree that SAN-based replication is possible and a good idea. So maybe we interpreted the post differently.
