Warm Site Recovery for Replication Groups

A warm site recovery replicates a source VM without creating a destination VM on the disaster recovery (DR) site. You can use the warm site for a replication group to create the disaster recovery VM only during failover for non-critical VMs.


  • No usage of DR site resources and cost until failover.

  • Perform point-in-time failover, test failover, or undo failover irrespective of the hypervisor limitation.

  • Override destination VM details after the replication group is created.
