I was going through the release notes of vSphere Replication 6.5 and really surprised to see the RPO of this new release…and thought of worth sharing:
VMware vSphere Replication 6.5 provides the following new features:
- 5-minute Recovery Point Objective (RPO) support for additional data store types – This version of vSphere Replication extends support for the 5 minute RPO setting to the following new data stores: VMFS 5, VMFS 6, NFS 4.1, NFS 3, VVOL and VSAN 6.5. This allows customers to replicate virtual machine workloads with an RPO setting as low as 5-minutes between these various data store options.
surely a great reason to upgrade to vSphere 6.5 and identify which all your VMs can work with 5 minute RPO and use this free replication feature of vSphere suite.
