Hyper-V Replica What is it? .

What is Hyper-V Replica? A virtual machine level replication solution which efficiently replicates data over a LAN/WAN to a remote (Replica) site without relying on software or hardware technologies outside of the Windows Server 2012 operating system • New in Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V Role • Storage and Workload agnostic • Servers can be standalone or members of a Failover Cluster • Servers can be members of a workgroup or a domain (same or different). Primary and Replica servers do not need to be in the same domain unless part of a Failover Cluster • Managed locally (Hyper-V Manager) or remotely (Hyper-V Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) or System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) • 4 Deployment Scenarios • Head Office and Branch Office (HO-BO) • Enterprise Datacenter • Hosting Provider Datacenter • Customer Office and Hosting Provider Datacenter (Cross- Premise) .
