I recently created a vCloud Availability demonstration video and wanted to share this out with others.
vCloud Availability (vCAv) for vCloud Director is a very powerful solution that provides Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) that’s built on top of vCloud Director. What’s great about vCAv is the ability to protect, migrate, and failover workloads from a tenant environment just from vCenter.
vCAv utilizes vSphere Replication as its replication engine while our Cloud Provider Business Unit built the architecture around vCD to provide scalable multi-tenancy. Granular selection of VM’s is possible that correlate to a DR-enabled VDC.
For VMware Cloud Providers that are interested in further details, here are some good links to start on vCAv:

Well, here’s the video. Enjoy!
