Replication solution research questions

Veeam Logoby manjacob » Mon Jul 11, 2016 4:59 pm

Hello,

I am performing a reserach on replication solutions.

Regarding Veeam Replication I would like to have answers for the following:
- Can the source and target virtual machines be part of the vCloud Director?
- Can the source and target virtual machines be part of the azure pack?
- What is the best way to use AWS as the target location for replication? Is using AWS storage gateway the only option?
- Is it possible to use Microsoft Azure as the target location for a replicated virtual machine?
- What is the best RPO/RTO that can expected using the Veeam Replication solution? Is it RPO of 15mins and RTP of say 5 mins for both?
- How does the Re-IP feature help?
- Should the target virtual machine be in a powered on state during replication?
- Is it possible to replicate the same machine to two different locations?
- Is there any OS that is not supported?

I would really appreciate if someone could assist with the information for the above questions!!

Thank you!

Yes, they can. Please review all the details over here > vCloud Director Support. In addition to this, there is a blog post about upcoming vCloud Director enhancements coming in v9.5 > Veeam Availability Suite 9.5

Please check out this topic for further reading > Windows Azure Pack Service Provider?

AWS is not supported as target for the replication job.

Currently it is not possible, but you can restore VMs to Azure right now > Cloud Restore for ANY Veeam Backup coming in Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 (this feature is available as a technical preview right now)

It depends on the hardware and backup modes you use. For example, hardware storage integration can vastly improve RPO and RTO of your VMs. Can you please tell us a bit more on your setup?

Please review this online help page for more info > Configure Re-IP Rules
Manoj wrote:- Should the target virtual machine be in a powered on state during replication?

No, it should be powered off.
Manoj wrote:- Is it possible to replicate the same machine to two different locations?

Yes, absolutely. You can create as many jobs as possible.
Manoj wrote:- Is there any OS that is not supported?

Veeam replication job supports any OS supported by VMware hypervisor.

Hope this helps!
