I have a site (site 1) in Wisconsin and a site (site 2) in Iowa, each of which has a NetApp running OnTap 7 mode (8.2.2), with 2 clustered 2012 R2 Hyper-V hosts running several VMs on a Cluster Shared Volume LUN on the NetApp. I want to backup the hosts and VMs at each site and replicate them to the other site so I have a local backup at each and an offsite replication. I have limited bandwidth between the sites so I really need to make sure backups are done locally at each site and the only thing that runs through the WAN link is the replication.
I have a SnapProtect server and an OnCommand server at site 1. Do I have to setup a SnapProtect server and an OnCommand server at site 2, or just a SnapProtect server? Or is it some other role I put at site 2? Any ideas on what I need in this scenario or how to achieve it
