Here is my scenario, I want to backup my physical server(s) to Virtual Machines hosted on my ESXi 5.0 server. I am not sure what is the best way to go about doing this. Not sure if this is making any sense to anyone but here is what I am trying to do:
1. I want to be able to use the VM copy of my physical server(s) in the event of an outage.
- Like a failover cluster situation.
- Thinking about using Double-Take to replicate the physical to virtual (is this wise?)
2. I then want to use Veeam backup v7 to backup to a external drive so that I can take the VM backups off site.
What is the best way for me to accomplish this, is the a better way. If possible, could you link me to a diagram of what would work.
