vfailover creates the whole failover configuration automatically to run vfailover in Maintenance Activity or Disaster Recovery Mode. HORCM and xml file creation, pair replication status check, Vmware vSphere™ object save, etc... all these tasks are done automatically. That broad functionality is unique on the market allowing Vmware administrators to control their disaster recovery solution on their own without the need of any storage administrator input.

Here is an overview of the tasks that are executed:
  • All data stores and virtual machines able to failover are gathered.
  • xml files necessary for the unplanned failover are stored.
  • Replication config files (HDS HORCM instance files) are created.
  • Replication status is being checked.
