VMware Site Recovery Manager (SRM) 4 has just been released

I have a great news today from VMware. They have released the new version of VMware Site Recovery Manager SRM which will support VMware vSphere. This release of SRM had been long waited by many of us who upgraded, or already planning to upgrade to vSphere. I thought I will share the good news with every one.

The support for vSphere is not everything, but another great feature of the new SRM is the ability to support multiple source to a single target storage, which was not supported by earlier releases of VMware.

Another long waited feature for SRM is the support for NFS Datastores. Yes, finally NFS is supported by VMware Site Recovery Manager.

Although vCenter 4 Linked mode is not a feature of VMware Site Recovery manager 4, it will be a great plus for the new SRM. vCenter 4 Linked mode will  allow VMware administrators to manage both sites for SRM from a single console.

The last thing worth mentioning is that VMware Site Recovery Manager 4 will be compatible with vDistributed switches.

You can download VMware Site Recovery Manager 4 Here.

Keep tuned & I will update you as I found out more about the new SRM Release. Enjoy your upgrade to vSphere now with VMware Site Recovery Manager 4 :).
