Looking for Best solution to achieve Disaster Recovery /BCP with minimal RTO and RPO
Specially for big size VM running SQL or heavy application
Which one would be cheap and best solution as mentioned below
What should be best solution for SQL Replication with no impact to Performance ?
vSphere Replication works with incremental backup or VM Snapshots ? and will there be any impact on big size sql VMs ? specially for RTO and RPO ?
If you are using vSAN, Flash datastores, the performance issues, is not so much of a problem, BUT the snapshot (Creation and Deletion) can cause the database to Stutter!
I would test the current VM if you can, may be best to clone and check in Test and Dev, the effect of snapshotting.
OR look at a SAN solution where the replication is done at the LUN and the snapshot is done on the SAN, which does not affect the VM. (This is SRM)
But other solutions exist with SAN to SAN replication.
