In this IBM® Redpapers™ publication, we describe various scenarios for the recovery of virtual machines should a disaster befall your data center. The solutions described rely on the integration of the IBM System Storage™ SAN Volume Controller (SVC) with VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager (SRM) and the appropriate Brocade SAN switch and routing technology.

The type of solution used depends on the level of protection required and the time available to perform recovery, so the appropriate scenario should be chosen according to your needs. The first of these requirements is known as the (RPO), while the latter is known as the (RTO).
