I have been asked to research various solutions for DR and Replication for a customer who has Veeam in their environment. While the documentation shows the scenarios I would like to use, in doing due diligence, I wanted to know if a potential solution is viable. From the documentation, the following is a standard configuration for a replication scenario:
In this case, the WAN link is a 1GB/s MAN. In a true DR scenario, I will not have access to the Veeam backup server (left side) so I am wondering what is the possibility of having a second backup server at the DR site as in the image below:
If this works, what are the requirements with respect to licensing, and the relationship between the primary site (left side) and the DR site (right side). Also, the DR site will house offsite backups as well as being the target for Replication as there are various RTO targets ranging from 15 minutes to 1 week recovery times and a requirement for offsite backups.
Thanks in advance
