Business Continuity question

Veeam Logoby IT_Architect » Wed Jun 21, 2017 9:33 pm

We use VMware ESXi for our web servers and simply do cross-backups for the entire VM. We also have local customers who are on bare metal that have substantial amounts of data. Currently, we use ShadowProtect. It works really nice when you want to recover to a previous point in time by simply just running the backup on VirtualBox, but when you want to go back the other way it is not so easy.

Can I use Veeam to backup to do snapshots like that out of vSphere, and have a backup that I can pick a point in time to run from, and then bring it back to a vSphere VM when I want to?

There is a Veeam white paper on protecting DC's so you may find your answer here: https://www.veeam.com/blog/backing-up-d ... ction.html

With regards to my personal experience, we normally configure a backup domain controller at our DR site to save replicating the domain controller. This allows AD to replicate using its own native replication opposed to using VM level replication
