Overview

Note

Before you order this add-on product and request a recovery, Armor highly recommends that you review the FAQs for upgraded users with DR to better understand how the Continuous Data Replication (Disaster Recovery) add-on product functions.

Armor, along with Zerto, provides a fully managed continuous data replication (disaster recovery) add-on product.

...

Note

As part of the upgrade process, any virtual machine that was subscribed to the Continuous Server Replication (Disaster Recovery) add-on product in Gen 3 will retain that add-on product in Gen 4.

For any Gen 3 virtual machine that did not have Continuous Server Replication (Disaster Recovery), or for newly created Gen 4 virtual machines, you must order Continuous Server Replication (Disaster Recovery) in AMP.
