Design - remote sobr repo

Post by cgrvy » Sep 30, 2016 9:40 am

We have a primary site using SOBR with local SAN volumes being used as a target - its working well. We have a remote site with a virtual machine with Veeam transport agent installed and a couple of large disks attached. We are backing up a couple of vm's at the remote site to these disks - we are also replicating from the primary site to these disks.

My question is, should I present up a few more disks to this VM, and then in Veeam at the primary site add them as a SOBR and point my replication jobs to the SOBR for easy of management etc? What will happen in the case of the primary site being lost - is it simply a matter of installing Veeam and bringing in the configuration file?

Many thanks,

Yes, once you fire up a new backup server and import configuration, you will be able to restore/continue backup. Whether you need a SOBR in remote location depends on whether you're going to benefit from functionality it provides. Ease of management is only one of the features.

Actually - version 9.0 does not support replication jobs to SOBR.

Right, I supposed you were talking about backup copy jobs that sort of replicate backups to a secondary location.
