  • Many infrastructure functions can now be managed at the hypervisor level – will replication move to the hypervisor as well?
  • Could hypervisor-based DR support the high-level requirements of enterprise-class data?
  • Undersand the BC/DR requirements for virtualized, mission-critical applications?
