In the event of a disaster, the recovery of VMs with VMware Site Recovery is simple and easy and only requires a couple of clicks. The entire process of recovery is completely automated and orchestrated with no requirement for manual intervention after starting the recovery.

VMware Site Recovery also handles the process of reprotection and failback. The Reprotect workflow reverses replication and protection and then the VMs are protected opposite the original direction and are ready to be migrated back or recovered.

Replication continues without impact to RPO. And VMs are isolated from the production network.
