Vcenter Hosts over a WAN

Post by abradley »

I don't see this being asked before so here goes.

We have several remote sites with only 2 VM host machines. I am configuring our central vCenter instance to control these remote hosts as additional datacenters within vCenter.

Question is - will Veeam have any issues with this configuration? I have deployed proxy VM's at each remote location along with local NAS storage for off-SAN backups.

I don't think this configuration will cause any issues but wanted to see if anyone else has a similar setup with a single vCenter and datacenters/hosts connected over various WAN speeds (4mb to Microwave in Mexico).

Thanks Everyone,

Andy Bradley

Hello Andrew,

There shouldn't be issues with this configuration, however keep in mind that all API queries/calls from proxy server will be performed against the vCenter Server over the WAN link, but VM data retrieval will be done within the remote site.

Thank you!
