vMSC & SRM link collector

My break-out session for the 2012 VMUG Event discussed vSphere Disaster Recovery options with a focus on vSphere Metro Streched Cluster and Site Recovery Manager. DR is certainly a interesting subject and I think it would be a good idea to start this vMSC and SRM link collector. So, just a collection of links to vMSC and SRM related articles and whitepapers. Enjoy!
The links are divided in two categories:

  • vSphere Metro Streched Cluster links
  • VMware Site Recovery Manager links

Both categories contains links to interesting stuff applicable to vSphere 5.x material.
