Veeam Cloud Connect Replication

SP can provide Disaster Recovery as a Service to its customers with Veeam Backup & Replication. Veeam Backup & Replication provides disaster recovery via image-based VM replication. SP can show resources of virtualization environments as cloud main computers to tenants.

Tenants can use the cloud main computers provided by SP to create off-site VM replicas. In the event of a disaster in the production site, tenants can migrate to the VM replicas on the cloud in a fast and easy way and use SP infrastructure as a remote disaster recovery site.

SP can provide Veeam Cloud Connect Replication resources for the following virtualization platforms:

VMware vSphere

Microsoft Hyper-V

In addition to a cloud storage, Veeam Cloud Connect Replication infrastructure has a multi-tenant architecture. SP allocates data processing, storage and network resources for a duplication target and provides them to tenants through hardware plans. For SP, a hardware plan is an abstraction layer which allows SP to divide a virtualization main computer or cluster virtually to multiple duplication targets. As a result, SP can provide duplication sources to multiple tenants and can store tenant data on the cloud in an isolated and separated way.

A hardware plan looks like a cloud main computer that can be used as a normal target main computer for off-site duplication for a tenant.

Veeam Backup & Replication provides network resources (network extension devices and private VLANs) to each tenants in order to make virtual machinery replicas on the cloud main computer accessible on the network after load transfer. Tenant can transfer a group of production VM (full site load transfer) or single VMs (partial site load transfer) to VM replicas on the cloud main computer. Veeam Backup & Replication creates a secure channel between virtual machinery replicas on the cloud and the virtual machines at the production site, and provides traffic encryption properties.
