Replicate to AWS

Post by Pete411 » May 17, 2015 6:11 pm

Has anybody successfully replicated to AWS with Veeam yet? IF you have please let me know know the procedure, we are going to start to move our DR to AWS and wanted to be able to replicate and of course fail back with Veeam, however I have not found anything on how to do this.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you

Hello Pete,

There is no way to replicate VMs to AWS directly, however you can try to use this approach as a baseline for your DR strategy > Veeam and Amazon Web Services

Thank you!

To setup a replication job you have to have access to the underlying host, which is not the case with AWS. The only solution I can think of is to create nested ESXi in AWS and use it later on as a target.

Personally, I wouldn't stick to it, as performance will be questionable in this case. May be you can use "Service Provider lookup" to find a service provider that offers this sort of services.

Thanks.
