Replication to Azure

Post by bartvvugt » Oct 12, 2017 6:42 pm

When running cloudconnect on Azure Virtual machine, it's not possible that customers can run replication jobs to it. Will this become available in the future?

It is possible today, we tested this right after Microsoft added support for nested virtualization to Azure (that is, running Hyper-V inside of an Azure VM). Even did some test failovers and replicas VM performed quite well.

Yep - we've been doing some testing with this specific scenario (nested Hyper-V in Azure with Veeam Cloud Connect and hardware plans). I demoed this at Microsoft Ignite during our Veeam sponsor session. I am also in the process of writing a blog post on how to.

In the meantime, here is a link to the specific topic inside of my preso from Ignite.

Post by badooo » Oct 26, 2017 12:14 pm

Hi ,

Is there any configurations for vm replications to Azure ? if not , how to configure copy backup to Azure ?

how to calculate the required bandwidth for this situation ?

You can replicate VMs to nested Hyper-V hosts residing in Azure.
if not , how to configure copy backup to Azure ?
Check this post; should be helpful.

Thanks.

or what is the minimum speed (bandwidth) we need to replicate the backup to azure

You can leverage this tool to get approximate estimation. Thanks.

Can you replicate from a local VMware environment to a nested HyperV server in Azure?

Replication across different virtualization platforms is not supported.

Is this on the dev roadmap? Microsoft offers this service for free (link below).

Toby, this functionality is not coming in the short term future, as replication between on prem Hyper-V and vSphere is not a common one. Here is an existing topic for more info. On the other hand, replicating workloads to the cloud might become a more popular scenario down the road.

You can back VMware VMs with Veeam Agent for Windows, and then instantly restore them to nested Hyper-V host. It's not sheer replication (more like a workaround), but still it's better than nothing.

Thanks.

Do you think we will be able to replication with Veeam CDP from Local Vmware to Azure Veeam Cloud Connect? Azure have site recovery services which converts the vmware vm on the fly into an azure vm. works very well.

No, cross-platform replication won't be possible. Thanks!

Thanks Vlad,

Surly cross platform replication is a must to be truly hyper available ?

Eventually, yes, but if we're talking about foreseeable future, then, there are no immediate plans to support this configuration. Thanks!

Hello,

Can we replicate the vmware virtual machine with RDMs to Azure ?

Support case ID : 03389096

Thanks
Surendra

Hi Surendra, this is currently not possible. RDM's can't be snapshot either so this would require interaction via an agent which makes replication harder.

Even with vmdk in place, it wouldn't be possible, since we do not have Replication to Azure feature. Thanks!

With the launch of Azure VMware Solutions will vSphere to Azure replication become possible? Here's hoping!

I'm not sure whether it will work out of the box. Most likely, some modifications will still be needed to support it. Thanks!

+1 on the feature request.

We are seeing a good amount of clients that have historically been using VMware and want to move to Azure. In certain situations it would be beneficial to not rebuild the VM all together, and it would almost never be beneficial to do an on premise VMware to hyper-v migration first. I know that someone mentioned using the Veeam agent as a workaround, what if rather than it being a workaround there were some automated functionality in that, kind of a "replicate vm to Azure" task. Granted it would not be hypervisor level on the source side but if you could make it a pre-orchastrated process that could run on a schedule it would be hugely helpful.

As a use case, i currently have an environment of about 15 ESXi hosts spread between a primary site and a Colocation. right now VM's are using Veeam to replicate from the primary site to the colocation. However, the plan that we are currently midway through is to get rid of the Colocation and move its functions to Azure (36 month plan is to move the entire environment to Azure).

The problem is that with the current configuration, once we retire the Colocation we have no where to replicate the VM's. Currently from my understanding our options are either back up to cloud connect (enterprise?) and restore to azure, or to move our replications to something like azure site recovery. It would be nice to be able to keep everything in one pane of glass.

Azure SRS is fantastic, that said i'd prefer as you say to keep 1 product for all. Holding hope for v10

i mean to that point, if Veeam could make some kind of management plugin so you could monitor Azure SRS from the veeam console that might be the path of least resistance but i don't know how the idea would fly
