Some of you may not yet have seen vSphere Replication in action.  VR was introduced about a year ago as part of Site Recovery Manager, but was spun out as a standalone feature of vSphere 5.1 in September 2012.

We did a couple of short videos of VR in action without SRM, that are now available on Youtube.  The first clip shows how to protect a VM through the web client using vSphere Replication.

As you can see, setting up a VM to be protected is a pretty easy process.  As for recovering a VM, we’ve got that covered as well with the second video.

Let me know what you think of the videos, and if there are other things you’d like to see shown in video format – I’m always looking for feedback on what you’d like to see on the Uptime blog!
