Minimizing downtime with disaster recovery (DR)
Microsoft provides powerful services within Office 365 – but a comprehensive backup of your Office 365 data is not one of them. Of over 1,000 IT Pros surveyed, 81% experienced data loss in Office 365 – from simple user error to major data security threats.
The Always-On Enterprise™ needs to deliver their services non-stop and provide employees, partners and customers with 24.7.365 data access. Critical applications should be available anytime with no tolerance for downtime. Utilizing replication, DR solutions can reduce services downtime from hours to minutes. They provide tight RTOs and allow businesses to keep their critical applications up and running at all times.
People traditionally think of DR as requiring huge investments in hardware and software as well as the need to build and maintain secondary site. Things have changed. With the flexibility of virtualization and the adoption of cloud technologies, there are alternatives to “do it yourself” DR — most notably, disaster recovery-as-a-service (DRaaS).
Whether you prefer keeping DR in-house or would prefer to find a trusted DRaaS provider, Veeam® has you covered.
VMware and Hyper-V disaster recovery
Advanced replication for a reliable disaster recovery
Implement Veeam Availability Suite and you’ll get cost-effective replication with near-continuous data Availability. Take advantage of host-to-host replication for DR, or create uncompressed ready-to-use replicas from backup files and avoid any impact on your production environment. Replicate as often as your SLAs require! Veeam also supports 1-click failover orchestration and assisted failback, so you get a DR solution with little to no business interruption. If a primary VM goes down, you can immediately fail over to a standby replica and avoid downtime of your critical workloads.
Veeam Availability Suite supports both on-site replication for High Availability and off-site replication for DR of Hyper-V and VMware VMs.
Built-in WAN acceleration
Veeam makes DR reliable with SureReplica technology that enables automated verification of every VMware replica. SureReplica boots the VM replica to the necessary restore point in an isolated Virtual Lab and runs scripted tests against applications. Do you need to test and troubleshoot application upgrades and patches? You can do it safely and easily with SureReplica! SureReplica provides the peace-of-mind that if your application goes down, you can successfully failover with little to no business interruption.

Cloud-based disaster recovery with Veeam
With Veeam Cloud Connect Replication, you can ensure Availability of your mission-critical applications with fully integrated, fast and secure cloud-based DR through a DRaaS provider of your choice. As a built-in DRaaS solution, you can use a Veeam-powered cloud provider to host your off-site repositories, disaster recovery infrastructure and replicas.
Veeam Cloud Connect Replication is a fully integrated DRaaS-enabling technology purpose-built for VMware and Hyper-V disaster recovery. Instead of building and maintaining a second facility for disaster recovery, simply point your replication jobs to the cloud. That easy! Veeam Cloud Connect Replication is available for all end users at no additional charge and with no additional licensing required. However, you will need to acquire a subscription to the appropriate computer and/or storage resources from a service provider of your choice in order to utilize it. Image-based replication with Veeam Cloud Connect Replication is cost-efficient and easy to use:
- A cloud host for DR with CPU, RAM, storage and networking resource allocation from a service provider
- Full-site failover to a remote DR site from anywhere through a secure web portal. Partial-site failover to instantly switch over to selected VM replicas only
- Single-port connectivity via a secure SSL/TLS connection to a service provider with traffic encryption
