VOA and VMWare Cloud on AWS

Post by tony.gentry » Sep 09, 2019 7:15 pm

HI, we are standing up and SDDC in AWS VMC and need to know what (if any) limitations there are using Veeam Availability Orchestrator to replicate to from our on-prem VCenter to VMC for DR purposes.

Hi Tony,
You can use Veeam Backup & Replication to replicate between on-prem and the VMC-AWS environment. Then Veeam Availability Orchestrator (VAO) can manage replica failover & failback.

However VAO cannot perform DR plan testing in the VMC-AWS environment. This is because the permissions model enforced by VMware/Amazon does not permit us to reconfigure the networking to create isolated test networks in a Veeam DataLab. (It's not known if or when they will change this model)

Apart from plan testing, all the functionality of VAO - including DR plan creation, management, reporting, change tracking, custom scripting, application verification etc etc will all work as expected in the VMC-AWS environment.

Thank you Alec. That is what I needed to know. Just so I can answer the question for my leadership, is there any documentation that lists this out?
