windows server 2012R2 Vs Veeam back up and replication software
Posted on 2014-03-02
I am running windows server 2008R2 Hyper-V at the moment with 9-10 VMs running on 3 hosts and a storage. This solution has some kind of redundancy. However, if the storage blows up and the site is blows up then there is no immediate restore. The hardware is under warranty.
Currently looking for more redundancy solution solution so the recovery time is reduced. i have been looking for two options at the moment:
1. Get a Veeam backup and replication product. Have a offsite storage and a server. Then replicate all the VM's accross and keep it as cold site.
2. Upgrade the existing Hyper-v environment from 2008 to 2012R2. 2012R2 has built in replication.
I wish to find if anyone has come across similar situation and what solution they picked up.
