Best Synology NAS devise to use for disaster recovery for a medium-size business.
Current Backup Solution: Currently using VEEAM with the idea to backup images to NAS device then move offsite to a datacenter. Would like to have the ability to run an image from the NAS device to recover data or as a backup if the primary VM is down. Is this possible?
Environment: Running 2019 Server hosting two VM's (Hyper V). One VM is a PDC and the other VM is an on-premise exchange server, both running Server 2016 Standard.
I'm comparing the following models most likely will go with the DS1520+
1. Can I stop using Veeam for backups and use Synology?
2. Prefer to do imaging with the ability to boot into the image to restore data or temporarily run from the image file if the primary VM is down. This means, "if possible" having the ability to boot the image from the NAS device.
3.. Virtualization isn't all that clear, Synology claims I can boot a VM from the NAS device, is this from their software, could I do it from VEEAM's software, or from Hyper V?
