Veeam backup and replication multiple sites

Post by janindu »

Hi all, I have 3 sites running 1 esxi host each site. I'm planning to implement Veeam backup and replication to protect VM's running in each site.

My plan is to use site "B" as Site "A"s DR site and use site "A" as site "B" & "C" s DR site. Those sites are connected with 50Mbps VPN link.

The suggested solution to deploy one Veeam B&R server on site "A" for management and deploy Veeam backup proxy servers on sites "B" and "C"
for backup jobs. The solution also includes Veeam Backup repositories on sites "A" and "B".

any thoughts?

Hello Janindu and welcome to the forum.

I suppose that the advanced deployment scenario would fit your needs.

Also you should deploy backup proxy on side "A" too.

If you have any questions left, let me know.

BR,
Alex

Hey,

Can you share your thoughts about the jobs? We want to get a full picture of what you've planned.
For example, site C left without a repository, according to your previous post, so I assume all backups\replicas will be sent to the site A? Thanks!

Please refer attached image - Auckland is site "A", Wellington site "B" and Christchurch is site "C".

The customer requires onsite and offsite file backup for each site and offsite replicas for application servers
I hope this gives a clear image.

The plan looks solid - you just need to make sure that all hosts as well as repositories are reachable from central backup server. Then, it's just a matter of creating necessary backup, backup copy and replication jobs. Thanks!
