New to the forums so apologies if I post this in the wrong place, etc.
I have a customer who we currently host their Hyper-V VMs in our Colo environment which is then backed up with Veeam Backup and Replication to a Physical Server in our Rack along with other customer VMs.
They have asked for a Replication of their VMs to an onsite Server for DR as well as to just physically have a on-site copy of their data and so on.
We have a VPN between their site and our Colo for some stuff but I don't particularly want to expose any part of our backup infrastructure over it if possible.
So my question is how I can achieve an on-site replication of their VMs from our Cloud environment that can then be failed over in the event of an issue and then failed back if/when resolved without using a VPN?
I thought maybe Cloud Connect would work here but since the VMs are already in our Cloud I'm not sure the right way to configure that nor do I have much experience with Cloud Connect currently (though always happy to learn).
Any help or guidance much appreciated.

and welcome to the forums.
it depends how you define "expose" At least you don't need your hardware or components running at the customer site.We have a VPN between their site and our Colo for some stuff but I don't particularly want to expose any part of our backup infrastructure over it if possible.
What you need is the connections mentioned in the user guide to the Hyper-V servers. I see no way doing that without VPN (or any other direct connection technology).
The other way round (on-prem to service provider) would work with Cloud Connect Replication. But that does not help for your setup.
Another question is, who should do the failover / failback? The customer or you as a provider? Depending on the answer, it might require a separate backup server only for that customer.
