Veeam Cloud Connect Replication
Fast, Secure Cloud-Based Disaster Recovery
Powerful and reliable features and functionality to help you avoid the risk of catastrophic data loss
Every business, regardless of size, has to have a backup and disaster recovery plan. But, when it comes to planning one, we’re faced with the following challenges:
- Costs and complexity – Business data needs to be stored in a second site, but it’s too expensive and complex to build and maintain an offsite infrastructure.
- Lack of resources – Many businesses are looking to extend their backup infrastructure to the cloud, but they don’t have the cloud expertise or budget to build their own infrastructure.
- Value – When it comes to investing in a DR site, your clients might be wondering if it’s worth paying a lot of money for something that is rarely used.
The solution? An efficient and less costly DRaaS solution that simplifies the entire process for any business size. Joho TeK’s Veeam Cloud Connect is cost-effective and easy to use. SMBs get an enterprise-grade solution that is fully redundant with a 99.999% SLA, hosted in a special tier 3+ datacenter with excellent physical and digital security.
Replication = As data is being written to databases and flat files, that same data is being transmitted over a network to another storage system, usually to an alternate processing center or cloud provider. Replication is the continuous or near‐continuous transference of updated disk blocks every five minutes.
Can replication replace backup? No, simply because today’s DR needs require both backup and replication. In other words, businesses need to frequently back up data and have a copy of their operating systems (or virtual machines). The two practices of Backup and Replication work together to quickly recover files and critical systems. It’s also a great solution for companies that are legally required to retain their backups for several years.
By renting resources from a leading service provider we partnered with on a pay-as-you-go model, your clients will have CPU, ram, storage and networking resources available for failover operations — without any capital costs or the burden of designing, deploying and managing the DR site daily.
So, what happens in the event of a big disruption, outage or failure?
This is where backup and replication tools can be used together to create a solid DR strategy. Your client’s backups can be used to restore their machines to an on-premise server or in the cloud to bring them back online in less than a day, depending on the size of their VMs. And since their primary site is also protected by replication in case of a site-level disaster, their workloads can be switched from their original server to its VM replica. Their services will be back online in minutes or a couple of hours and users can access services and apps with minimal disruption.
