Backup & replication on separate server

Post by aacable » May 08, 2013 5:33 am

Recently I deployed VEEAM B&R at a company. VEEAM is installed on local backup server and is taking daily backup of HYPER-V production server. This backup server is placed at remote location connection via fiber.
Now I want to add another server with same specs as production server. I will install another VEEAM on the secondary hyper-v 2012 server and will setup replication on it. So the strategy would be that remote backup server will just backup the production hyper-v and secondary server will replicate all the production hyper-v vm daily.
Will this method works fine ?

I don’t think I completely follow you there.

Are saying that your VB&R server is installed locally and you’re using remote device connected to it via fiber as a target repository? And you’re willing to deploy additional hyper-v server at remote location along with another instance of VB&R and set it responsible for replication job only?

If so, such scenario will definitely work. Moreover, it’s recommended, indeed, to leverage additional VB&R server placed in remote location in case of WAN replication. Thus, in disaster situation all functionality (Failover, Failback and etc.) can be performed by DR VBR Server itself without any issues.

Hope this helps.
Thanks.
