SRM is an orchestration tool - it allows you to specify the order in which you want things to fail over and power on/off, and it also enables you to specify scripting choices like IP changes and the like. The SRA plugin enables Nutanix to be the underlying replication layer while SRM sits on top orchestrating the failover process with a much higher degree of control.
I think SRA also enables you to have shorter snapshot windows - 30 minutes instead of the Nutanix DR 60 minute window, but that could be a foggy inaccurate memory.
