Lab 10
Lab 10 Lecture Materials
Lab 10, Task 1 VMware Cloud Disaster Recovery leverages the VMware Cloud on AWS Recovery Software Defined Data Center ("SDDC") as a disaster recovery site, which you can use if disaster strikes (or for testing) and you need to fail over your protected vCenter to the cloud. A new SDDC can be created from the VCDR Console for this purpose or you can Import an existing SDDC.
Connect an Existing SDDC to VCDR
Lab 10, Task 2 The VMware Cloud Disaster Recovery DRaaS Connector is a stateless software appliance that enables replicating VM snapshot deltas from "protected" vSphere sites (on-premises or VMware Cloud on AWS) to cloud backup sites, and back, driven by policies you set in protection groups.
Add and Configure a Protected Site
Lab 10, Task 3 In these sub-tasks we will review the Cloud Services console, the VMC on AWS SDDC environment and the On-Prem.
Review the Environment
Lab 10, Task 4 Protection groups allows you to create regularly scheduled snapshots of your VMs which replicate to a VMware Cloud Disaster Recovery cloud file system.
Create a Protection Group
Lab 10, Task 5 A DR Plan defines the orchestration configuration for disaster recovery and workload mobility. Plans run either for recovery as an actual DR plan operation, or they run as a test recovery, which performs all of the plan’s recovery operations in a test site for validation.
Create a DR Plan
Lab 10, Task 6 When you run a DR Plan as a failover, a running instance of the plan recovery steps launches and the plan continues to completion, or until a pause for user input, or upon encountering an error (if configured).
Execute a Failover
Lab 10, Task 7
Review the Recovered Virtual Machine
