Hi Guys,

Quick query, will CDP be able to be used with Veeam Cloud Connect Replication? Or only local replication? Will the feature require the replica to have access to the production storage / shared storage?

Still trying to understand exactly how the I/O redirects will work and not sure if Cloud Replication will work effectively?

Hi Matt, replica will not require access to the source storage. Cannot comment regarding feature availability for the Cloud Connect at the moment.

Hi Matt,
I/O redirection is done inside the vSphere VAIO libraries, each ESXi will have a connector where our software, being VAIO compliant, will be able to connect and retrieve a copy of each IO for VMs that are selected to be protected with CDP. So write IO will be technically split, one copy to the underlying storage, the other to our sofware. That's why we don't need access to the underlying storage.

Thanks guys for the information! Fingers crossed this will work with Cloud Connect.

Would it be possible to go from VMware to Hyper-V with CDP? Or is VEEAM Agent backup the only way? Desperately in need of a conversion tool that can keep things in sync until the cut-over.

CDP is VMware-to-VMware. You will need to continue using VAW to go from one hypervisor to another by exporting the disks from the agent backup to the appropriate virtual disk format.

Alternatively, you can instantly recover agent backup to Hyper-V host and, then, finalize the restore procedure. Thanks
