VM replication and corruption
Posted on 2014-10-28
If a VM is replicated over 2 sites (2 unique SAN's), if the VMDK hosting the OS, apps, databases and DB backups in the primary site corrupts for whatever reason - will the corruption also be replicated to the copy on the other site? Our admin is writing backups to a local drive on a VM, he claims if the hardware (i.e. SAN) failed then he wouldn't lose both the online DB and the backup as the copy on the other SAN would stay in tact. Yet I wasn't sure if the same rules apply for corruption as opposed infrastructure failure?
