WAN Accelerator, Scale Out Repository and Deduplication

Hi

I am looking into setting up DR offsite and was wondering about the setup offsite, can I just setup a Server 2012 R2 box with Hyper-V role enabled, add it to Veeam under Managed Servers, Microsoft Windows?

From there would I connect the remote repositories directly to this offsite server and setup the WAN Accelerator on this box as well?

Does it need the console installing? I suppose it would be handy.

With regards to Scale Out Repository if we already have a repository with backups can I add this to a scale out repository without losing all the current data?

If I mix fast storage and deduplicating storage is Veeam clever enough to store, latest backups on fast storage and archival backups to the deduplicating storage?

We will be using Windows deduplication on some of the iSCSI repositories if that makes a difference.

Many thanks

Hi Chris,

You should add the Server as Microsoft Hyper-V to be able replicate VMs, for example.
Please keep in mind WAN Accelerator is recommended in case you've less than the 100mb\s connection between the sites.
The console itself just connecting to the backup server and provide you the ability to manage it remotely.
There is no need to install another instance of the Veeam B&R, however, you can use it for replication jobs, as it's recommended approach to manage replication jobs from the DR site.

Yes, you can add simple repository's with the backup files without losing them, however, be aware of several limitations.

No, but Archive Tier coming in v10 might be a good solution for that. Thanks!
