· Storage policy-based management: Site Recovery Manager 6.1 simplifies the process of adding and removing protection to virtual machines. It features new storage-profile protection groups that:
- Utilize vSphere storage profiles to identify protected datastores and automate the process of protecting and unprotecting virtual machines and adding and removing datastores from protection groups.
- Enable integration with vRealize Automation to perform self-service provisioning of SRM protection to applications in a private cloud environments.
· Integration with VMware NSX: Integration with VMware NSX 6.2 lets you use network virtualization to simplify the creation and execution of recovery plans and accelerate recovery.
- By leveraging new NSX logical switches that span vCenter boundaries, Site Recovery Manager allows you to automatically map network resources across the sites when creating a recovery plan, which lowers operational expenses and reduces time to protection.
- After failover, network and security settings including IP addresses, security groups, firewall settings and edge configurations are preserved on recovered virtual machines, further decreasing recovery times.
· Zero-downtime application mobility: Site Recovery Manager 6.1 can orchestrate cross-vCenter vMotion operations at scale using recovery plans when using a supported metro-distance stretched storage solution as underlying replication.
- Site Recovery Manager users can perform disaster avoidance and data center migrations without downtime and accelerate disaster recovery time.
- Stretched-storage users can experience the benefits of Site Recovery Manager, such as centralized recovery plans, automated non-disruptive testing and orchestrated virtual machine recovery.

- vSphere 6.0 support: vCloud Director for Service Providers 8.0 adds support for vSphere 6.0 in backward compatibility mode.
- NSX support: vCloud Director for Service Providers 8.0 adds support for NSX 6.1.4 in backward compatibility mode. This means that tenants' consumption capability is unchanged and remains at the vCloud Networking and Security feature level of vCloud Director 5.6.
- Organization virtual data center templates: Allows system administrators to create organization virtual data center templates, including resource delegation, that organization users can deploy to create new organization virtual data centers.
- vApp enhancements: Enhancements to vApp functionality, including the ability to reconfigure virtual machines within a vApp, and network connectivity and virtual machine capability during vApp instantiation.
- OAuth support for identity sources: Support added for OAuth2 tokens.
- Tenant throttling: : Prevents a single tenant from consuming all of the resources for a single instance of vCloud Director and ensures fairness of execution and scheduling among tenants.

Fault Tolerance Requirements, Limits, and Licensing
Before using vSphere Fault Tolerance (FT), consider the high-level requirements, limits, and licensing that apply to this feature.
CPUs that are used in host machines for fault tolerant VMs must be compatible with vSphere vMotion or improved with Enhanced vMotion Compatibility. Also, CPUs that support Hardware MMU virtualization (Intel EPT or AMD RVI) are required. The following CPUs are supported.
