as per my knowledge veeam is more cheaper and have the ability of srm .i dont know whether i am right.
So it will attempt to send bits over to secondary site asap but not require an "ack" like sync would.
I will leave it at that 🙂
SRM is also really nice for the use of DR testing. You can click the test button in SRM and it will simulate a failover without actually downing your running prod VMs.
It will put all recovered VMs in a private non-uplinked network so you dont have IP issues or same computer on the network issues.
I think this is the #1 feature of SRM.
One big issue with SRM is that it was created for use with block storage, so all of our per VM replication is thrown out the window with SRM. You will need to organize your SRM policys by placing the correct VM's into specific datastores.
Thanks for your kind reply.Actually my understanding about SRM was wrong now i am clear from your reply that SRM is Orchestration controller.so actually which method we need to use
SRA+SRM or Veeam backup and replication in nutanix.which is the best method.?
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.
