storage device and second site
Posted on 2009-04-22
i have a main site with two esx servers that are in a cluster for DRS, HA etc. all works very nicely indeed.
i have a second site connected via fibre. i want to put one / two older servers out there running esx foundation and attach a large and VERY cheap storage device. the purpose of the site is soley for server backup in case of a disaster. they wont be used or booted on a daily basis, only if a virtual server in the main site blue screens etc.
i want to use vizioncore to send incremental backups of the vm's out to the storage device in the second site. will this work and if so should i use NAS or iscsi, san is out of hte question for the second site. will NAS do the trick for me i.e. store the incremental backups of the vms and let me start them up out there to an ok speed if the main site dies.....
thanks in advance
