Cloning Technology Options

Cloning the Primary server to create a nearly identical Secondary or Tertiary server involves different technologies depending on the selected server architecture.

Automated Cloning Technologies

The following cloning technologies are supported for creating cloned images for use as a Secondary or Tertiary server during the installation of Neverfail Continuity Engine:
  • VMware vCenter virtual machine cloning is used when deploying a standby HA or standby DR server in a Virtual-to-Virtual environment.
Important: When installing in a Virtual-to-Virtual architecture, VMware Tools must be installed and running on the Primary server before starting the Neverfail Engine installation process.
  • The VMware vCenter Converter is automatically used when cloning in a Physical-to-Virtual environment.
Note: VMware Converter must be configured prior to attempting installation of the Secondary server.

Assisted (Manual) Cloning Technologies

The following cloning technologies are supported with this version of Neverfail Continuity Engine:
  • Using Windows Server Backup for Manual Cloning
  • Using VMM for Hyper-V to Hyper-V for Manual Cloning
  • Using SCVMM for Hyper-V to Hyper-V for Manual Cloning
