    Hyper-v3 Replica

    Anybody using this feature yet?
    I started setting up a test environment for this last week and just finishing off this morning, I wondered if anybody was using this or planning to use it in production?

    Also when googling I found this news article on replica

    I would have thought you wouldn't need it in a cluster because of using shared storage?

    Sorry I didn't explain that very well! Replica looks to be designed at having reasonably high availability without using a cluster or shared storage. I think im right in saying that to have a hyper-v cluster you need shared storage for your VM's, so although you could replicate your VM elsewhere off the cluster it wouldn't be beneficial within the cluster.

    Ah I see. Well I am looking for a good way to backup a cluster. If my interpretation is correct you could replicate the VMs off of the cluster (in a different location) and replicate them back in a worst case scenario.

    You could yes, meaning you always have a backup of your server that is up to date, another option would be DPM.
