Data center DR Veeam

Post by johnhk » Aug 29, 2019 9:57 am

Hi ,
If we deploy Veeam Management on Production Site for SQL Always On Group and Replicate to DR Site.
If all Production down.

Can we open the Replicate VM directly without Veeam Management Server? It is support SQL Always On Group?

Hi,

What do you mean by Veeam Management? If this is a Veeam B&R server, then yes, you can initiate the VM replica power-on operation on the DR site manually if the source site is down.

Thanks!

But with this scenario in mind, the best practice is to have Veeam B&R instance responsible for replication in the DR site - to be able to use replica failover/failback functionality.

Standard Support AAG for all the features?
Backup for VMs, servers and workstations (with advanced data reduction)
Replication for VMs (environment replication for DR)
Instant recovery on-premises and direct restore to the cloud
Flexible granular recovery (file and application items)
Veeam DataLabs Secure Restore (malware protection)

Thanks.

You can do either that or have a separate Veeam B&R instance for that - please review this thread for the dedicated discussion.
