DRaaS defined

Veeam Cloud Connect allows you to easily set up and maintain a secure multi-tenant environment for hosting standby virtual machines (VMs). And with Veeam, you can offer your customers the best that DRaaS has to offer, including:

  • 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

How it works

Veeam Cloud Connect presents your customers with a “cloud host” to which they can replicate VMs.

  • Your customers simply click “Add Service Provider” from the Veeam console and enter the credentials you’ve given them.
  • Their cloud hosts appear in their Veeam infrastructure.
  • Replicas transfer securely over an SSL/TLS connection, using a single port.

That's it! There’s no VPN, no separate console, and cloud hosts work like other replication targets — except customers can provision them on demand and without having to maintain a second site.

Networking made simple

Automated network reconfiguration eliminates the high cost and headaches of reconfiguring networks for DR testing or full or partial failover. Veeam network extension appliances preserve communication with and between running VMs, regardless of their location

In addition, many tenants want the option for advanced networking services that NSX offers. With the supportability of VMware NSX Edge, service providers can deliver the advanced networking services their tenants demand.

Leveraging VMware NSX Edge for advanced networking

Bandwidth-friendly features

Built-in WAN acceleration, BitLooker™, seeding and more allow you to provide DRaaS to customers with slow or unreliable WAN connections or a large number of VMs. Customers can even replicate from backups in cloud repositories you host for them with Veeam Cloud Connect Backup, further reducing the amount of data that must be sent across the WAN.

If you have VMware vCloud Director, DRaaS is a no-brainer

Executing a failover plan with VMware vCloud Director

For users of VMware’s industry-leading cloud management platform, building a Veeam-powered DRaaS offering is easy because you won’t be reinventing the wheel. You’ll have the tools to repurpose your existing hardware, networking and self-service schema to build a Cloud Connect Replication offering that allows you to:

  • Easily architect your DRaaS offeringusing your vCloud Director virtual data center resources for compute, storage and networking
  • Automate DRaaS customer management with integrations into vCloud Director user and group authentication mechanisms
  • Put power in customers’ hands by leveraging the vCloud Director HTML Tenant UI, so they can control what happens to their environment in the event of a failover 
  • Up-level networking with VMware NSX Edge integrations
