AHV Replication Options

We are designing a Nutainx cluster utilizing a NX-1065-G5 four host block licensed with Prism Pro and Acropolis Ultimate. This will be the production site managing approximately 12 workloads. For the recover site we are looking at building a 3 host Dell cluster. The hypervisor throughout the environment will be AHV. There will be a Cisco metro network solution between these two sites.

My question is, what are our options for replication between the two sites? The KB lists solutions for ESXi and Hyper-V, but does not mention AHV configurations. Is this because this is a native solution built into the Prism solution? Thank you for any enlightenment.

You can use the native backup and disaster recovery solution to replicate data between sites. For AHV you can configure protection domain by using Async DR (up to 1-hour RPO) or NearSync DR (up to 1-minute RPO ). Please refer to the following documents:

Please, let me know if you have any additional questions.
Many thanks Richardson. These are the resources I have been looking for. -Jeff
