Feature Request - Replication of Physical Servers

Post by Matt.Sharpe »

[Feature Request]

Following on from the recent innovation Veeam introduced of Instant VM Recoveries of Veeam Agent / Physical Backups. I think it would be a great next step/DR innovation to allow physical servers to be replicated as part of a DR plan and automatically invoked as part of the same process. It's easier to use Instant VM Recoveries now than having to manually recover to a VM from hard disks or recovery media. However I feel it would be even more efficient for customers who use local DR replication and Veeam Cloud Connect to be able to involve physical server backups to a Failover Plan and know the entire infrastructure is covered.

If the IVM technology works, surely a similar idea for replication is achievable? It would require different transport methods of course, maybe even just allowing a replication from backups so no snapshot is required as part of the transport process?

thanks for the request. It's much more complicated in the background as it sounds in the first place, but it would be interesting if you could specify the use cases.

If you say Cloud Connect... are you talking about Cloud Connect Backup or Replication? For Cloud Connect Backup we always expect that the provider does not have access to the encrypted backups.

Who would do the "failover"? The customer or the provider?

Best regards,
