Fully implemented VMware DR solution

This is a pretty sight:

Off-site VM's

In 10 minutes I was able to promote a replicated LUN on our off-site DR SAN, rescan for volumes on our off-site DR ESX host, and then add the VM to the inventory and power it up. Given our replication scheduling and speeds, I should be able to bring online a fully-functional VM in a state no more than 2 hours behind what the production server was. I’ll take that 🙂 Finishing off the documentation for the infrastructure and can move on to other areas, such as migrating more of our physical servers in to the environment – I’ve already decommissioned 7, and currently running 17 production and 5 dev VM’s.
