Veeam Cloud Connect Replication

DRaaS as part of a comprehensive availability strategy

Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) is normally implemented in addition to, or separate from, an overall availability strategy, pulling the focus of IT away from current datacenter investments and momentum—adding a layer of management complexity that can leave you uncertain if you can really recover if something goes terribly wrong.

Veeam® enables DRaaS as part of a comprehensive availability strategy, embracing virtualization and storage investments in your datacenter and extending them through the hybrid cloud. Affordable and efficient image-based VM replication delivers true cloud-based disaster recovery for ALL applications (RTPOs < 15 minutes) through the best and most trusted DRaaS providers across the globe—just choose the provider that suits your needs best!

 

Fast, secure cloud-based disaster recovery

Get the most out of DRaaS with Veeam Cloud Connect VM replication, providing fully integrated, fast and secure cloud-based DR (disaster recovery) through a DRaaS provider.

Advanced, image-based VM replication through Veeam Cloud Connect is simple to set-up and easy-to-use through a service provider. It includes:

  • cloud host for DR with CPU (central processing unit), RAM (random access memory), storage and networking resource allocation from a DRaaS provider
  • Full-site failover to a remote DR site from anywhere with just a few clicks through a secure web portal and partial-site failover to instantly switch over to selected VM replicas only
  • Full and partial failback to restore normal business operations
  • Built-in network extension appliances to simplify networking complexity and preserve communication with and between running VMs, regardless of the physical location
  • 1-click failover orchestration for quick execution and site failover testing for failover simulation, without disrupting production workloads
  • Single-port connectivity via a secure, reliable TLS/SSL (Transport Layer Security/Secure Sockets Layer) connection to a service provider with traffic encryption
  • Multiple traffic-reduction technologies, including built-in WAN acceleration, BitLooker™ and replica seeding

Simply choose a Veeam service provider and point your replica jobs to the cloud host exhibited by a DRaaS provider.
