In the session the two speakers told us about nowadays implementations of SRM and the future enhancements that we will probably take advantage of: automatized fail back and Host based replication.
SRM UI has been improved yet, and both site status and summary can be seen from a single pane
Vmware is working to improve ip customization, in case of different subnets on the recovery site: the future IP customization process will monitor changes in the local IP settings, will be faster and will support IPv6
Host Based Replication will be available maybe next year.
HBR will provide:
per vm replication
async RPO from 15 mins to 24 hrs
will be vsphere based, so no array replication required
ethrogeneous storage will be supported
can coexists with array replication
will be vmotion and HA aware
will be efficient, only changed blocks are replicated and self tuning to mantain RPO
