VMware Cloud Disaster Recovery Features

Pilot Light

In Pilot Light mode, DRaaS deploys a subset of Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) hosts ahead of time to recover critical apps with lower RTO requirements. 

Detailed DR Reports

When performing workflows, history reports are automatically generated. These reports provide proof that your DR plans are tested and executed correctly.

Instant Power-On

In a disaster, stored replicas are instantly powered on by mounting the Scale-out Cloud File system (SCFS) directly to the SDDC. 

Delta-Based Failback

Get automated orchestration of site failback with a single click. Optimize failback cloud egress charges and DR operational costs by only transferring back the changed blocks of data to the production site.

Immutable Snapshots

Live Mount allows hosts to boot virtual machines (VMs) from snapshots stored securely in the SCFS for short- and long-term retention of immutable, operationally air-gapped snapshots.

Frequent DR Health Checks

DR health checks consistently run every 30 minutes for increased reliability. Any issues automatically generate email alerts to the proper resources.

VMware Cross-Cloud Services

VMware Cloud Disaster Recovery is a Cloud Infrastructure service of the Cross-Cloud services portfolio that enables Disaster Recovery in a public cloud.
