Veeam Cloud Connect Replication: More than just the cloud
The Always-On Enterprise must ensure that its services comply with today’s new demands and challenges. Availability plays a central role here. In addition to common situations where a backup is needed (for example, when a user accidentally deletes data or a system cannot start after an update), more recent issues related to encryption-based Trojans also plague organizations today. While protecting backups against encryption-based Trojans was discussed earlier in this Veeam blog, many companies continue to look for solutions that deal, not only with backup protection, but also with disaster recovery (DR) scenarios.
What is a disaster?
A single local-system crash can damage a business-critical application and result in a disaster for business operations. In a worst-case scenario, a problem such as, for instance, long-term air-conditioning interruption or a flood will go beyond the local systems and have a vast impact on the company’s infrastructure.
It is important to restore access quickly to data and systems during a disaster. For this reason, infrastructure complexity should be minimal, because complex components will make the process more difficult. VM replication is often a proposed DR solution. This option is advantageous because replicas are usually stored in the second location at a safe distance, which means that data can be used directly, without having to restore the original systems.
