I am in the process of designing and implementing a DR solution for our business.
3 IBM Servers(Esxi Hosts)
IBM Physical Server(Used as backup repository)
VMware 5.5 Essential Plus
Veeam B & R 7
What I am looking for :
Phase 1:Offsite Backup(compliance requirement),Disaster Recovery .
Disk Based Offsite Backup
Products considered : Tandberg Quickstation (RDX) drives.
(co-location site with ISP)
Replicate the VM's to DR Site with near CDP frequency
Products considered : Unitrends(appliances onsite and co-location site), Quorum(onq) appliance(appliances onsite and co-location site). Double Take (with a SAN/NAS and Powerful Server at the co-location site).
In Phase 1 we are looking only at DR, and BCP to be covered in Phase 2. But we want use a scalable DR solution, so that we can utilize it for our BCP also.
Please share the pros and cons of the mentioned solutions:
