Part 1 of 2 of the VMware Site Recovery Manager 5 series covers installing and configuring SRM, as well as how to protect and recover virtual machines. VMware Site Recovery Manager 5 finally fulfills the promise of virtualization to revolutionize your Disaster Recovery capabilities. This course will help virtualization administrators prepare to engineer a leading edge disaster recovery plan for virtualized environments. You'll walk away from this course able to install and configure a new SRM 5 solution with storage array-based replication and with the new VMware vSphere Replication, set up a low-cost virtualization lab for demoing the capabilities of SRM 5, understand common scenarios where SRM 5 excels, design a straightforward SRM 5 solution, and conduct planned migrations, failover and reprotect sites after a failover. To get the most out of this course, you should have a solid understanding of administering VMware vSphere 5 and of the foundations of networking and virtualization.
