VMware vSA virtual appliance data replication ?

Hi all,

 

Does the HP VSA VM data can be replicated with the build in function to another ESXi host across two different data center ?

 

What are my options to perform data replication from one VMFS data store to another ?

Re: VMware vSA virtual appliance data replication ?

There is no good reason to do that.  Are you trying to run a single VSA appliance and back-door multi-site redundancy?  Before worrying about multi-site redundancy, I would be screaming for single node redundancy and get mgt to get you the funding for a 2nd VSA license so you aren't running your SAN off the equivalent of a single HDD...  you wouldn't let your local storage run without RAID would you?  Why would you let your SAN do that?  If you do have two+ VSA nodes, then you should get one more VSA node to run remote replication snapshots to....  sorry this all means $$$$, but if you want it at the SAN level then that is the only way you can do it...  that or use other backup/replication methods like you would for any other HDD.

@albertwt  - I just saw your question.  Tell me a bit more about what you're trying to do.  With HP VSA, you can have a stretched cluster with multiple nodes in each location.  You can also download a full featured 60 day trial on hp.com to play with.
