I need to find a good 3rd part SANreplication software between our main site and DR site. Most VMware VM's some physical about 10 servers or so in total. The SANs are 2 different vendors so I guess I'm stuck with going 3rd party software instead of using SAN based software.

What software woud you recommend based ease of use, stability and quality of the product, technical support, ease of installing administrating etc?

Also, what is the difference between byte and block level replication?

    Accepted Solution

    I don't think you'll find "SAN" replication software since there are two diffferent san vendorrs.  What you can find is 3rd party replication software

    such as:

    VMWare:  Veean Backup or Quest vReplictor.  Either one does a good job.

    Phyiscal Servers:  XOsoft, Neverfail, etc..  This is allows for active failover
