VEEAM v8 Replication vs VMware DRaaS Replication Compared
Posted on 2014-12-26
I am evaluating a few solutions for a DR plan. We currently use VEEAM for our backup solution, so I am considering proposing the VEEAM v8 replication to a VEEAM cloud provider. I am also considering straight up VMware DRaaS and replicating to their cloud for our DR solution. Both seem similar in that they replicate the VM changes and you can boot them up on the cloud when/if necessary. Can anyone give a thorough explanation of the pros and cons of each of these solutions in comparison? I think VEEAM is application aware where VMware's replication solution is not. I'm not sure if VMware has WAN acceleration or not like VEEAM does. Etc, etc.
Any input is appreciated.
