- • New replication architecture. Replication now uses a 2-agent architecture that allows VM data
to be collected at the source site by one backup proxy server, and sent directly to the target backup
proxy server at the destination site, bypassing the Veeam backup server. As a result, placement
of the backup server (production or DR site) no longer matters, and questions about push versus pull
replication and differences between ESX and ESXi targets are eliminated.
• Cluster target. v6 replication jobs support selecting either a specific host or a cluster as the replication
target. Replicating to a cluster ensures that replication can continue even if the current replica host
• Full support for DVS. v6 offers full support for VMware Distributed Virtual Switches. This allows transparent
replica state transitions with no manual editing necessary in virtual environments with DVS (such as vCloud
If so, will it also be possible for the Cloud provider to use Veeam 6.0 to backup the replica in order to provide various RPO increments and failover points?
Keep up the good work guys
