RPO with replication Jobs in DR scenario

Post by Alvaro »


We are setting up a DR scenario for a client that has a virtual environment of about 50 VMs.

Veeam builds a DR chain based on Vmware's capabilities. Okay

But what would be the minimum RPO that could be obtained with this solution?

I see that veeam can execute replica job every minute ..
But is this real? In other words, I suppose it will depend on the number of data to be replicated and the bandwidth available.

In conclusion, in a replica scenario,
Could we get 1 minute Veeam RPO as the manual seems to indicate?

a cordial greeting

Hi Alan, your understanding is correct, this mostly depends on the amount of changes and network (and other processing chain components) capabilities. You can perform some tests to see if your environment is capable of replicating every several minutes (keep in mind time to create/remove VM snapshot as well) and while testing, look at the Veeam B&R future CDP functionality.
