I have the requirement to Support a Three Node DR plan where I have Virtual Machines running in DC1 and DC2 and the third site as a shared DR Site. Does Zerto support Multi-Site +DR replication ?
DC1 – Production VMs plus extra capacity in Compute to run DC2 workloads as a backup site
DC2 – Development VMs plus extra capacity in Compute to run Production and Dev VMs.
DR1 – Disaster Recovery Site with Compute capacity to run minimum production capabiliy
I need to do Cross replication between DC1 and DC2 to protect the production VMs as well as DC2 to DC1 replication to protect the Development VMS. AT the same time I need to do asynchronous replication of both sites to the DR site as a Disaster Recovery site in the event of a catasterophic geographical failure of both DC1 and DC2. Can Zerto support this type of architecture ?
it’s very similar to my feature request
If you are asking if a single VM can be replicated to two sites at once, that is not an available feature yet.
If you are wanting to chain from A>B>C with the same VM, that is not a feature yet either. If you want DR and then a copy of the protected VMs at a third site for archival or longer term protection, you could use Zerto’s offsite backup feature.
thanks Shannon the two firsts scenarios you mention is the ones I need, I know the backup feature and works pretty well
I have a scenario where I need to migrate servers from Site 1 into Site 2 (both vCloud) which will work fine. Once that’s done, I’ll remove the VPGs involved and everything will run in Site 2 – no problem with that.
However… I need to get replication working from Site 2 to Site 3 very shortly after the migration is completed. There’s around 30Tb of data, so could take a while over the network. If, during the Site1->Site2 replication, I was also sending offsite backups to Site3, could those be used to preseed the Site2->Site3 replication?
Hi Zerto, I have similar/same requirement as Dave L – migration from Site 1 to Site 2, absolute minimal delay in protection to Site 3 – in addition, my case Site 3 is a Zerto Cloud site.
Is there any update to the comments from Shannon S – re: “if a single VM can be replicated to two sites at once” and/or re: “If you are wanting to chain from A>B>C with the same VM”.
Thanks a lot
