Hyperv 2012r2 cluster replica to single host

Veeam Logoby janatecx » Mon Jan 11, 2016 11:13 am

Hi,

I have configured a new server 2012r2 Hyper-v cluster (3nodes). I would like to replicatie one of the vm's (which is currently installed on local ssd storage on 1 node) to another standalone Hyper-V host.
Hyper-v is telling me this is not possible, as this vm is not a clustered resource.
I know Veeam does support this. However, I would like to know the impact of Veeam replication on a production vm. Veeam replica's work with snapshots. How does this work in detail? Can we have continuous replication without impacting the production vm?

I have some experience with veeam hyper-v replica, but only from replication from backup. not from a live vm.

I would greatly appreciate feedback and help on this matter, as our customer is asking for replication of this vm.

many thanks in advance.

Hi,

many thanks for you reply.
this section describes the backup feature.

I would like to know more about replication. what is the minimum of replication time... does veeam always create a snapshot? Let's say, I want to replicate every 15 minutes; does Veeam create a snapshot every 15 minutes?

thx

this section describes the backup feature.

Snapshot replica works essentially the same backup does.

what is the minimum of replication time

Minimal time interval is to start new replication cycle as soon as the previous one has finished.

Does Veeam create a snapshot every 15 minutes?

Correct.

Thanks.
