Using IPM With VMware's Site Recovery ManagerSource: Eaton Corporation
Eaton’s Intelligent Power Manager (IPM) continues to simplify data center management. Among its virtualization-rich feature set is its ability to avoid a disaster by triggering VMware’s Site Recovery Manager when the data center utility power is disrupted (and when other events jeopardize power availability), leaving the data center to be powered by UPS battery.
The benefits of IPM integration with VMware SRM include:
- Starts recovery process on several different events. IPM will initiate the execution of a recovery plan upon several different events.
- Less down time for end users. VMs will be down only for the amount of time required to transfer the latest snapshot and will restart once the transfer is complete. The unprotected VMs will continue to run on the primary site.
Customization for end users. Users can customize the script included in the package as per their needs. For instance, when users want to configure SRM with IPM for low battery and protection loss features, they’re able to make such customizations. This allows users to best align their needs with this integration.
