VEEAM to support DR for Azure Stack

Veeam Logoby wjching » Thu Jan 18, 2018 8:42 am

Hi All,

Was just wondering if VEEAM has a roadmap to have support for Azure Stack as a target for DR scenarios. As hinted by the following articles.

https://www.veeam.com/news/veeam-extends-no-1-availability-solutions-to-microsoft-azure-stack.html

https://www.veeam.com/executive-blog/primary-launch-partner-azure-stack.html

Currently from what i understand VEEAM agents has supports to DR Production workloads to Public Azure.

Thanks in advance and Regards. :D

Hello wjching,

Thank you for your post. Indeed, it's possible to install agent to a vm running in azure to protect it on a guest level.

Hi Dima,

Thanks. I understand that is a possible scenario, however if I want to protect the whole stack I would need to install it to each and every VM. was wondering if this agent installation can be done centrally such as how VBR 9.5 U3 is doing right now ?

Hi,

If it's possible to discover Azure VMs as a part of Veeam B&R protection group, then yes, you can automate the deployment and configuration distribution. Thanks.

Hi Dima,

So far I have not seen such a thing being attempted before, would you happen to come across or know any tools or keyword i could search online for more information on this ? Understand that Azure Stack is built to be quite locked down in terms of the Hypervisor level and its storage levels, which could prove as a challenge in VM discovery. I suppose a tool that has integration with Azure Stack for this situation would come in pretty handy.

Here is Veeam Agent Management Guide which can be used to setup agent management functionality in Veeam B&R. Regarding the Azure Stack VMs - can you see/access these machines from your backup server?
