Backing up Windows Virtual Servers to either Azure or AWS
Posted on 2017-12-06
I have a client with Multiple ESXi hosts running around 16 Servers, these servers are all windows based using Server 2008 R2 with at least 1 SQL server. The client would like a backup and redundancy plan put together with the following:
RTO/RPO 60 minutes
Local Copy of backups to QNAP/NAS
Remote copy of backups to AWS/Azure
Intra-Day snapshots each hour to Local NAS - File/SQL
Daily Backup Snapshot (NAS) with replication to Azure/AWS as a recovery site
Daily backups to be store for 7 days, weekly for 4 week, monthly for 6 month etc.
Recovering from local backup within approximately 1 hour. SQL and File servers have cross dependencies and so recovery of all would be required to allow complete functionality.
VMware vCenter & a version of Veeam availbale,
Has anyone completed integration with VMware and AWS/Azure for this before and has it worked as expected and or are there other options available that will allow for this level of backups/recovery
