I did this in my test lab- and it seems to work very well. I realize this has implication of hardware requirements on the B&R server, enough resources to run the VMs on itself if necessary. (memory, processor, etc.) It just seems to make sense to provide the capability, since imagining a hardware failure on one of the primary hosts is one of the main things to protect against.

Since a couple of my VMs have 2TB of data- the thought of recreating those VHDs either locally or back onto the original host seems contrary to the whole concept of "Instant"-. My perception was that the recovery VM can actually boot / run of the backup file itself. Am I all wet here, or just doing the Instant recovery all wrong?
