How It Works
Here’s the step-by-step process for our recipe to replication:
- A user is given a hardware plan with a set amount of storage and processing power by ThinkOn. A replication job is then created by the customer and pointed to the second site with ThinkOn.
- Veeam sends replication management traffic, VM data transfers and inter-VM communications over a single TCP port protected by SSL/TLS to ThinkOn s infrastructure. There is no need maintain VPN connections, or multiple firewall ports.
- Veeam populates the ThinkOn site with the details of the replication job created by the customer. Veeam negotiates all replication traffic and network configurations. This acts as a standby until needed during a disaster.
- VMware vCloud Director integration allows for seamless orchestration of failovers and greater ease of connection for auxiliary appliances and resources. vCloud Director also allows for an allocation of reserve compute resources available for usage at the time of disaster or testing.
- All replicated data can be stored on ThinkOn’s 3 Tiers of Block Storage.
- At the time of disaster, a customer can initiate a failover from a web portal and Veeam will resume services from ThinkOn s site. When active, customer is charged per hour for consumed compute resources.
