Veeam Replication over WAN - VMware & DR
Posted on 2014-09-14
We are just planning out DR solution as we currently don't have one in place.
We have two sites, Head Office and Data Centre. Data Centre is where most of our VM's are located. We only have a few VM's in Head Office like local domain controller, print services, wsus etc...
Anyway, we are thinking of making our DR destination in Head Office as we have multiple links to leverage off.
I know some of you may be thinking Head Office is not a good idea as it a location where the prod stuff is but we need something up quickly and they will be on a separate link and host and SAN so lets just work with this for now.
Our plan is to replicate the current Data centre and Head office VM's to this different host on a different SAN in Head office but we havent bought our DR SAN yet. Its in progress. Is it possible to start replication all VM's to our current Head Office SAN (make some DR LUNS) and then once we buy our DR SAN, just copy our replicated VM from current to new SAN and continue the replication? or would we need to start over from scratch.
Any other tips would be much appreciated.
