Appendix C. vCloud Suite Disaster Recovery

Disaster recovery for vCloud Director is described as “DR of the Cloud.” It is full-site-based failover and recovery of the entire vCloud infrastructure, including associated vApps.

The VMware vCloud Suite assembles existing products to facilitate disaster recovery of the vCloud from one site to another. See the following for more information about how this architecture supports disaster recovery:
