FAST, SECURE CLOUD-BASED DISASTER RECOVERY

The survival rate for companies without a disaster recovery plan is less than 10 percent, according to a study by Touche Ross. Though we can’t prevent disasters from happening, we can prepare effectively for them, which is why a comprehensive Disaster Recovery (DR) strategy is mission critical. Traditionally, enterprise-caliber DR has been out of reach for most small and mid-sized companies who just don’t have the dollars or resources to build out an offsite repository. This is where Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) has become a game-changer.

Veeam Cloud Connect Replication enables DRaaS as part of a comprehensive availability strategy, embracing virtualization and storage investments in your data center and extending them through the hybrid cloud. Affordable and efficient image-based VM replication delivers true cloud-based disaster recovery for ALL applications (RTO/RPOs <15 minutes).

  • Fast, flexible failover of specific VMs or an entire site.
  • Streamlined failback with zero data loss and minimal disruption to users.
  • Recovery assurance, including support for replica and failover testing and alternating production between sites.
  • Seamless integration with Veeam user interfaces, workflows and data collection.


Key Capabilities

  1. NEW Support for VMware vCloud Director, the leading platform used by cloud providers to deliver secure, efficient, and elastic cloud resources.
  2. A cloud host for DR with CPU (central processing unit), RAM (random access memory), storage and networking resource allocation.
  3. 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.
  4. Built-in network extension appliances to simplify networking complexity and preserve communication with and between running VMs, regardless of the physical location.
  5. 1-click failover orchestration for quick execution and site failover testing for failover simulation, without disrupting production workloads.
  6. Single-port connectivity via a secure, reliable TLS/SSL (Transport Layer Security/Secure Sockets Layer) connection to SGT with traffic encryption.
  7. Multiple traffic-reduction technologies, including built-in WAN acceleration and replica seeding.

  4. End-to-end encryption: Rest easy by encrypting all data at source (before it leaves your network perimeter), in flight and at rest, without negatively impacting the data reduction ratios of built-in compression and WAN Acceleration.
  5. Licensing and Fee:Managed through agent licenses and easily scaled with storage pools.






Hosted off-site backups

Get your physical and virtual backups off site to a hosted cloud repository through a secure SSL connection with no additional Veeam licensing required.



Complete visibility and control

Access and recover data in hosted backup repositories directly from the backup console, track cloud repository consumption and receive reminders for hosted storage renewals.



End-to-end encryption

Rest easy by encrypting all data at the source (before it leaves your network perimeter), in flight and at rest, without negatively impacting the data reduction ratios of built-in compression and WAN Acceleration.



VMware vCloud Director support

NEW support for VMware vCloud Director, the leading platform used by cloud providers to deliver secure, efficient and elastic cloud resources.



Fast, flexible failover

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.



No additional licensing required

Veeam Cloud Connect is included within Veeam Availability Suite™, Veeam Backup & Replication™, Veeam Backup Essentials™ and Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows at no additional charge.




Mastering the 3-2-1 Rule with cloud backup


The 3-2-1 Rule states that you need to keep three copies of your data, stored on two types of media with one copy off site. But getting backups off site can be challenging due to limited bandwidth, exploding data volumes and a lack of resources required to build or maintain a true off-site backup repository.

With Veeam Cloud Connect, you can master the 3-2-1 Rule without dumping money and resources into a second site or adding bandwidth — just leverage cloud backup repository services from a Veeam Cloud & Service Provider partner to take advantage of Veeam’s built-in WAN Acceleration technology and so much more.





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 Hyper 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!


Our customers are going to love DRaaS with the flexibility to provide full or selective failover and failback to either new or existing infrastructure.
