VMware vSphere® Replication™ is a virtual machine data protection and disaster recovery solution. It is fully integrated with VMware vCenter Server™ and VMware vSphere Web Client, providing host-based, asynchronous replication of virtual machines. vSphere Replication is a proprietary replication engine developed by VMware that is included with VMware vSphere Essentials Plus Kit and higher editions of VMware vSphere, VMware vSphere with Operations Management™ editions, and VMware vCloud® Suite editions.
