Good day to everyone,
I'm new to this forum so I apologize if this case was considered here before. My question's next: even after reading the whole documentation section on Veeam and Hyper-V I still cannot figure out how exactly should I implement VM replication in my Hyper-V environment.
Our current scheme is the following: in main server room we have two-node Hyper-V cluster, which is connected over the LAN in the same subnet to dedicated Win 2012 R2 Server host with Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 installed, where we store backups of our virtual machines, which are running on the cluster. Additionaly we write our backups to the tape library once a week. But now we have a new server room in another building, it is also in the same network environment and will be used for disaster recovery in future, so here where the difficulty is, because I don't know what to do for rapid recovery if our cluster will fail someday - should I install another server with Veeam Backup Software in this room, and what is the correct action plan for enabling Replication Job for our VM's?
What type of Veeam software should I install on this new server, if I have Enterprise license and if I'm not mistaking there can be only one main Veeam Backup Server instance, so will it be some kind of Veeam Backup agent or what? I didn't find any clear instructions how to do it. I want to add only one server and don't want to install another cluster (with tho nodes) for Hyper-V backup replica, so will Veeam Replica solution be better for my case? Will it work the same way as if I'd implement Hyper-V Backup Replica for two clusters? Also we don't have full backup of cluster nodes itself yet, I know that we can do it through Veeam Agent for Windows, so should I store these copies on secondary Veeam server or better to provide another backup repository for this purpose? And if I'll enable Hyper-V failover in Veeam, how it will interact with main cluster? Thanks in advance.
