Back in April we we’re the first to report the limited management and automation support in vSphere, but now VMware has released version 4.0 of vCenter Site Recovery Manager.

Besides that vCenter Site Recovery Manager can now be used with VMware’s vSphere 4 it has some additional new features and improvements, like:

  • Support for NFS storage arrays;
  • Support for Shared Recovery Sites;
  • Support for VMware Fault Tolerance;
  • Support for Distributed vSwitches;
  • Maximum number of protected VMs increased to 1000;
  • Graphical interface to advanced settings;
  • Support for DB2 as an SRM database server;
  • Fully compatible with Distributed Power Management.

Licensing remains to be socket based as it was the case with SRM 1.0
