SRM 4.0 – Get it now!

When VMware demonstrated a technology preview of the new
Site Recovery Manager (SRM) features at VMworld 2009 a month back, significant
portion of the audience during the VMworld SRM sessions indicated that they
were waiting on NFS support to deploy SRM. Several customers said that they are
waiting for SRM support to deploy vSphere 4.0 in production. We heard loud and
clear how important these features are for your organization. I am excited that
today we have delivered vSphere 4.0 and NFS support as a part of SRM 4.0 GA
release. 

 

This release would not have been possible without the
involvement of our beta customers and partners. On behalf of the SRM team, I would
like to send a thank you note to all the SRM 4.0 beta customers, storage
partners and channel partners, who tested the SRM 4.0 beta product and provided
us with valuable feedback during the SRM beta process. I also want to thank the
storage partners who helped recruit participants for the SRM 4.0 beta program.

 

I am happy to share some great comments from beta
participants:

 

“In my 25 years of IT experience, VMware vCenter Site Recovery
Manager is one of the best solutions that I have ever implemented.  With
the latest SRM improvements and features, coupled with vSphere, disaster
recovery preparation is much easier.” – Ed Belliveau, Principal Systems
Engineer, Bentley
University

 

“VMware
vCenter Site Recovery Manager is the industry-leading product for automated
disaster recovery of virtual environments”, Hany Michael, Qatar General
Electricity & Water Corporation

 

We hope you will try out SRM 4.0 release in your vSphere
environment and look forward to your feedback and comments. You can download SRM 4.0 here.  Please be sure to check out the release notes and
documentation
as well as other VMware Uptime blogs ("A quick tour of SRM 4.0"  as well as "SRM 4.0 is here! The wait for vSphere and NFS support is over") to learn more about

Thanks again.
