Recently in my discussions with customers regarding virtualisation the topic of Site Recovery is becoming very popular. I thought it would be worthwhile listing some the resources available to help you understand how Microsoft virtualisation solutions can help you with Site Recovery
The Microsoft Site Recovery Solution helps customers implement and manage cost effective, end-to-end site recovery programs. Built on proven capabilities in Windows Server 2008 R2 and the System Center management suite, Microsoft is helping IT Professionals leverage Windows Server Hyper-V and Failover Clustering along with tools like Virtual Machine Manager to deliver cost effective site recovery.
Microsoft is working with a broad range of storage replication to deliver solutions that take advantage of the Microsoft Cluster Resource DLL. With cluster integration IT Professionals can deploy streamlined and automated site recovery. Not only do the solutions provide streamlined fail-over, they also deliver fail-back while System Center delivers the physical and virtual management capabilities necessary to operate this solution.
