Product : Datrium, DVX [HCI]/, x86
Feature : Remote Replication Cloud Function, Disaster Recovery, Data Availability

Data repository (AWS)
Datrium ControlShift can be used to leverage VMware Cloud on AWS as a replication target. Because VMware Cloud on AWS is a full vSphere implementation, replicated VMs can be started and run in a DR-scenario. Datrium ControlShift requires additional licensing for all protected VMs. However, at the moment Datrium ControlShift for VMware Cloud on AWS is still a Preview Feature.

Without Datrium ControlShift AWS can only serve as a data repository. This means that VMs cannot be restored and run in the AWS environment in case of a disaster recovery (DR) scenario.
