    This IBM Redbooks® publication is designed to give the reader a broad understanding of IBM Virtual Machine Recovery Manager (VMRM). VMRM is a family of solutions that provides high availability and disaster recovery (HADR) management solutions for users of IBM Power servers. The VMRM solutions include the following items:

    • VMRM HA provides a single-site, high availability (HA) solution.
    • VMRM DR provides a dual-site, disaster recovery (DR) solution.
    • VMRM HADR and VMRM HADRHA combine HADR into a single management solution.

    Because VMRM is based on virtual machine (VM) recovery, it is operating system-independent, and can provide a solution for any VM running an operating system that is supported by IBM Power.

    The publication provides a high-level description of the VMRM solutions that are suitable for management looking for availability solutions for their infrastructure. In addition, it provides in-depth information into the installation, configuration, and management of the solutions, which is designed to help the system administrators that are involved in the installation and management of the solution.
