We've inherited a Veeam B&R setup in an 'Appliance Model' or 'Simple' deployment i.e one physical server (Windows Server 2016) running the following:
- Backup & Replication Server
- Backup Proxy
- Backup Repository Components
We are looking to improve this in time via the 3-2-1-1 rule.
My 1st point of action is to get this data copied off-site via 'File Copy Jobs' to their DR site - currently provisioning and running up a repository at the DR site.
What is my best route in terms of storage file system? Can I run the DR server with a Windows OS/Linux file system or should I go full blown Linux?
I'm looking for a solution that limits my exposure (as we all are). So should the server at the DR site be off the domain etc.
Any pointers or articles would be greatly appreciated.
