VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager Storage Partner Compatibility Matrix

Documentation | Knowledge Base | Communities

Last updated: 27-August-2012

VMware Site Recovery Manager software has been tested and deployed in a variety of Storage Area Network (SAN) and Network Attached Storage (NAS) environments. This document lists the Storage Replication Adapters (SRAs) currently supported by VMware and its storage partners for SRM versions 4.0, 4.1 and 5.0. All certified SRAs automatically assume certification for update releases. For example, all SRAs certified for SRM 5.0 will be certified for 5.0.1. Please note that the SRM 1.x and 4.0.x versions are now EOL per plan. See https://www.vmware.com/support/policies/lifecycle/enterprise-application/index.html for support details.

VMware works closely with each of its storage partners to drive towards mutual support of SRM at the time of announcement. Due to different product release cycles, levels of testing, and partner agreements, not all storage devices will be supported at the general availability date of a new version of SRM. We recommend contacting the storage vendor for the best information on when their device is planned to be certified with SRM.

Also note that the SRM compatibility matrix for a specific release only lists those arrays that are supported on the VMware SAN compatibility list (http://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/search.php?deviceCategory=san) with the corresponding version of ESX. So for example, storage array entries for SRM 5.0 will show only those arrays that are supported with ESXi 5.0.  Contact the storage vendor for the full list of arrays supported with various combinations of SRM, SRA and vSphere releases.

The Storage Replication Adapters listed are software modules for Site Recovery Manager that are developed and supported by storage partners of VMware and are distributed  by VMware with the permission of the storage partners. These Storage Replication Adapters have separate End User License Agreements (EULAs) that are included within the downloads. For more details about the Storage Replication Adapters and VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager, please see the Site Recovery Manager EULA and documentation. Any issues found with the vendor provided SRAs are handled by the corresponding vendor as described in the 3rd party support documentation at our support policies web page.
