Disaster recovery Site with Hyper-V 3 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I have two sites with a Dataceter in each site. 

    Each Datacenter hosts a set of applications. 

    I plan to use Hyper-V with W2K12 to virtualise all my physical servers. 

    For some critical servers, I want to replicate them for site1 to site2 or vice versa. How can I aschieve that? 

    PS: I have the same storage in both sites with the replication agent.

     tanks in advance

  • Hi!

    For replicating virtual Machines between clusters, you need to configure a replica broker, as explained in this article:

  • 1. You can use two clusters with Hyper-V Replica.

    2. You can use one cluster and storage with replication technology.

    LUN replication works for everything, Hyper-V replica does not work for at least SOME scenarios. W/o knowing OP's workload its pretty difficult to guess...

  • can I combine LUN replication with HyperV replica or do I have to choose one method?

  • You can both scenarios, but method with storage replication is preferable.
