So i am feeling sorta stupid so i figured id ask the experts.
I have a network spanning an entire city. In one end we have a datacenter with 2 vmware clusters. There is a Backup server in the building running Veeam Backup & Replication v8 with latest patch. We are now preparing a second identical Veeam Backup & Replication v8 server to place in another building on the other side of the city. The two offices are connected by a 1gb fiber link.
Question is this:
We don't have a seperate vmware cluster at the other building we simply want another backup server to be able to perform incase the first backup server dies for some weird reason. Should we setup a backup copy job to the second backup server OR should we run a backup replica (if its even possible).
Any advice is welcome i feel sort of lost
