HPE XP7 Storage Replication Adapter Software for VMware vCenter SRM

HPE XP7 Storage Replication Adapter Software for VMware vCenter SRM. The SRA, developed for XP7, XP P9500, XP 24000/XP20000, and XP 12000/10000 disk arrays, enables SRM to work with Continuous Access array-based replication. The VMware Site Recovery Manager (SRM) protects the virtual machine systems on VMware from disasters and other emergencies. It streamlines the protection of critical virtual machines with data, and continuously tests their availability for the highest level of business continuity. During SRM configuration, SRA is used to discover local and remote XP7 disk arrays. SRA is also used to discover XP7 DR Groups and ensure DR Group is in synchronized state prior to failing VM from local to remote site. New features include automated failback and planned migration.

Below is the list of features and benefits

  • Discover local and remote XP7 and XP P9000 disk arrays
     

  • Discover HPE XP7 and XP P9000 DR Groups and devices contained within them
     

  • Ensure DR Group is in a synchronized state prior to failing VM from local to remote site
     

  • Failover DR Group so VM can start up at remote site in the event of a disaster or planned migration (with downtime)
     

  • Perform non-disruptive testing of recovery plans using allocate-on-demand snapshots of replicated devices using HPE XP7 Business Copy

What is new?

  • Automated failback

  • Bi-directional recovery plans
     
  • Automates failback to original site
     
  • Planned migration

  • New workflow that can be applied to any recovery plan
     
  • Ensures no data-loss, application-consistent migrations of virtual machines
     

Instructions

 

The SRA software does not require a license and is free software. Download the software for your array and install on both the local (protected) server and the remote (recovery) SRM server. Two servers with VMware Site Recovery Manager (one for the protected site and one for the recovery site) is a prerequisite for using SRA. There are other prerequisites with respect to CA licenses that must be installed on the local and remote XP7 and XP P9000 disk arrays. Please refer to the release notes for details on the prerequisite licenses and the list of supported arrays.
