Veeam is now part of Cisco dCloud

In the last couple years, On-Demand Labs have become an important part in our IT industry to train employees, run customer demos and get hands-on experience. One of the most innovative and capable On-Demand Labs is Cisco’s dCloud. Cisco dCloud is a huge catalog of demos, training and sandboxes for every Cisco architecture which are fully scripted. The customizable environments are available almost instantly in the cloud. It’s very easy to work with and to get started, all you need is a Cisco account.

That’s why I’m more than happy to let you know that as of mid-November Veeam is now part of Cisco dCloud and provides you with full hands-on experience of our Veeam Availability Platform and the integration in Cisco HyperFlex.

There are two different labs available to you:

  1. Veeam Demo Lab

The demo is intended to be used to demonstrate the Veeam integration into Cisco HyperFlex as well as different backup and recovery scenarios:

Scenario 1: Introduction to Veeam
Scenario 2: HyperFlex integration
Scenario 3: Backup HyperFlex VMs
Scenario 4: Restore VMs in a HyperFlex Cluster

  1. Veeam installation and configuration lab

The lab can be used to perform a full installation and configuration of Veeam as well as the integration of a HyperFlex environment. Furthermore, the lab also guides you through backup and recovery as well as replication scenarios:

Scenario 1: Install Veeam Backup & Replication
Scenario 2: Add Cisco HyperFlex Storage to Veeam
Scenario 3: Perform a backup
Scenario 4: Perform a restore
Scenario 5: VM replication

The labs are available in the following areas: US East, US West, EMEAR, APJC, China, and can be accessed with your personal laptop and a Cisco Login.

The labs contain several different components, including:

  • Cisco HyperFlex HX Data Platform 2.5 (Simulator)
  • Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 2 (Windows Server 2016)
  • UCS Director 6.0 (Emulator)
  • Microsoft Active Directory 2012 (Windows Server 2012 R2)
  • SQL Server 2016 (Windows Server 2016)

We hope you enjoy the new offering to use Veeam in Cisco’s dCloud and you like the experience of our integration into Cisco HyperFlex.
