Stretched Clusters and VMware vCenter, Site Recovery Manager

Been meaning to get this up....better late than never.

Stretched Clusters and VMware vCenter, Site Recovery Manager

"This paper is intended to clarify concepts involved with choosing solutions for vSphere site availability, and to help understand the use cases for availability solutions for the virtualized infrastructure.
Specific guidance is given around the intended use of DR solutions like VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager and contrasted with the intended use of geographically stretched clusters spanning multiple datacenters.
While both solutions excel at their primary use case, their strengths lie in different areas which are explored within."

every enterprise deploys antivirus software on every desktop. As services such as security, mobility, access
control, and line-of-business applications are all rolled up into the datacenter or cloud, antivirus practices need
to be rolled up as well."
