    Has anyone tried using VMware Site Recovery Manager to replicate System Center SQL Servers (SCOM, SCCM, etc) to a disaster recovery site.

    Would you recommend it? Should be look at AlwaysOn instead? Why is one better than the other?

    While it is supported, I would suggest approaching it with caution, weighing the rate of change in your database, available wan bandwidth, etc.

    You’ll want to take care to watch the following as well:

    • Database and log files (.mdf and .ldf) replication must be carefully coordinated
    • Reindexing, etc. causes a lot of change in the database that may impact sustainibility of this approach.

    Personally, I am a fan of SRM (or Hyper-V Replica) for the front-end systems and SQL AlwaysOn for the backend.
