Site to Site Replication
Posted on 2014-01-28
I have been tasked with replicating backup data for a client between two sites. The configuration is as follows:
Vmware vSphere 5.5
VDP1 - VDP 5.5
VDP2 – VDP 5.5
Vmware ESXi 5.1
The VDP appliances at the datacentre are running to iSCSI Lun on the Qnap devices. I need to replicate the data from the VDP1 & VDP2 LUN to the Remote office (100Mb pipe). I am sure there are a number of ways to complete but I seems to be going around in circles.
~Option 1 - Qnap LUN backup & Restore (the smaller 1.6TB was estimated at over 110 hours
~Option 2 – Replication Job usine VDP (is the full version required here or can this replicate to a standalone VDN on the remote office ESXi server.
~Option 3 – 3rd party software solution to manage Lun replication
Any option or fleshing out of the above would be much appreciated.
