What protection configurations are supported?
VMware Site Recovery can protect (1) workloads running in an on-premises datacenter to a VMware Cloud on AWS SDDC, (2) workloads running on a VMware Cloud on AWS SDDC to an on-premises datacenter, and (3) between different VMware Cloud on AWS SDDCs.
Must the on-premises versions of vSphere, vCenter and Site Recovery Manager match those deployed in VMware Cloud on AWS?
No. VMware Site Recovery was designed to provide flexibility in the versions of the components deployed by a customer in their on-premises datacenter and those deployed and managed by VMware in VMware Cloud on AWS. VMware Site Recovery is compatible with N-1 version of Site Recovery Manager and vSphere Replication on the paired on-premises datacenter. For example, if the current version of VMware Site Recovery is 8.3, the supported versions for Site Recovery Manager and vSphere Replication on the paired on-premises datacenter is 8.2 and later.

The service is available in all regions where VMware Cloud on AWS is available including AWS GovCloud (U.S.) region.
Is VMware Site Recovery available on other public clouds?
VMware Site Recovery is only available on the VMware Cloud on AWS infrastructure stack.
