Nimble: Policy-based Disaster Recovery

VM Failover with PowerCLI on Nimble Storage

At VMworld 2016  Julian Cates and Pete Flecha demonstrated a planned failover of a VVol VM.  If you haven’t already, be sure to check out Nimble’s implementation of Virtual Volumes on Nimble OS 3.  In this demo video you will see the following:

  • There is a VM on the source side called Barcelona Demo.
  • There is no replicated copy of this VM on the target side
  • The script kicks off.
  • The VM is removed from the source vCenter Inventory
  • The VM is brought online at the destination
  • Refreshing the view on the destination array shows that the previous replicas are now online volumes.
