Veeam replication of VMWare servers between 2 sites

We're looking to do the following.


Site A
2 servers hosting VMware esentials 4.
Each machine hosts 3 VMs on a SAN

Site B
DR building, 2 servers hosting VMware esentials 4 with SAN

Veeam replicates the VMS from site A to Site B.
1Gb link fibre between the 2 sites - they' renot far apart.

Yes it would work. Veeam is highly recommended software. Glad to see you've got an SAN as well.

Get free NFR key for Veeam Availability Suite 9.5

Veeam is happy to provide a free NFR license (1 year, 2 sockets) to all certified IT Pros. The license allows for the non-production use of Veeam Availability Suite v9.5 in your home lab, without any feature limitations. It works for both VMware and Hyper-V environments

I have veeam and use it at the moment.

However I have to reconfigure my vmware essentials.
Currently I have one server being replicated to the DR site using hte same VMWare license.
However I'm adding a second host and want it replciated - essentials only allows 3 hosts.
So I need to have my 2 main hosts under one license and my 2 DR hosts as another
It's complicated as we never thought we'd need 2 VM hosts. I just want to make sure
that Veeam will replicate even thought they are sepearete sites under sperate license.

Yes, this should work; Veeam doesn't really care about VMware licensing in the sense that you have 2 different 'kits', it only cares about total CPU sockets among all hosts involved in the backup or replication process. So, as long as you have enough licenses in Veeam to cover all hosts involved in the replication process, you should be golden.
