DR planning & best practice

Post by rholgate » Apr 09, 2018 9:06 am

customer will have a vsphere solution and with veeam VBR enterprise deployment

primary data center has production Vsphere VMs and veeam backup server.

DR data center has Vsphere VMs replicated using Veeam

they wish to test DR being failing the link between the two data centers.

how can we failover to the DR site with no network from the primary?

would SRM allow failover of veeam backyp server?

Hi Rob,

If you deploy another instance of the Veeam backup server at the DR site and set it up for the replication jobs, you will be able to failover even if the main site become unavailable. Thanks!

You could also benefit from utilizing Veeam Availability Orchestrator.
