Hello All,

I have A client that would like to test his DR environment every few months. At the moment, we are replicating from client to our site via veeam, and are using our backup site to copy our veeam replicas to test our DR scenarios for our clients, but find that this can be a hassle at times and much of it is a manual process.

Does anyone know of a product or technical process that would automate this entire process that would allow the client to test the environment in DR mode on monthly basis, without any major impact?

Thank you

Hi Jimbo0215, what version of Veeam does your customer use? What hypervisor? Veeam provides SureBackup and SureReplica functionality (a part of Veeam Virtual Labs) which is able to do exactly what you are describing.
