A DR Plan Built Around Veeam Cloud Connect
When you combine Veeam’s built-in features and Storagepipe’s experience and capabilities, you get the simple, cost-effective, and maintenance-free protection for fast recovery in the face of any IT disaster.
Leverage Veeam Replication For On-Demand DRaaS Emergency Infrastructure
Failover plans involving secondary DR sites have gone from a luxury to a necessity for many businesses.
Unfortunately, maintaining a secondary DR site can significantly increase IT workload and networking complexity, while incurring significant additional costs. This is compounded by the fact that a second DR site offers very little business value, relative to the costs of implementation.
Through Storagepipe’s Veeam Cloud Connect service, you can save money by subscribing for emergency failover infrastructure as needed, while leveraging Veeam’s built-in replication and networking capabilities. This makes failover planning effortless and problem-free.
A Visionary Veeam Partner
Storagepipe has had a long history of innovation within Veeam’s partner network. Along with being Canada’s first Veeam gold service provider partner, Storagepipe also broke ground in many areas, such as being one of the first Veeam partners to offer both VMWare and Hyper-V support for Cloud Connect through a single partner, and also as one of the first partners to offer Veeam in a pay-as-you-go appliance model.
2 Flavors Of Failover
Through Storagepipe’s Veeam Replication for DRaaS services configure 2 types of failover scenarios from your Veeam console.
Storagepipe immediately provisions datacenter infrastructure and takes over the workloads for all of your virtual systems once a failover is activated. Full failover offers host-level protection, including all tenant VMs.
Failover only selected VMs having issues or assign failover plans to some of your most critical individual VMs. Partial failover minimizes the damage caused by unplanned downtime with its seemless end-user experience who continue to access applications normally.
By offering both Full and Partial failover, you get the optimal balance of protection, availability and cost-savings.
Transparent Networking For Painless DR
Networking has always been the most technically unpleasant part of any DR implementation. In order enable failover capability, you would need to set up VPNs and deal with significant network complexity in preserving communications across hosts in different physical locations before, during and after failover.
Veeam Cloud Connect simplifies this process. Transparent networking offers a complete networking overlay that enables seamless integration of the local and off-site components of your DR plan. This all happens without having to change any of your TCP/IP settings, and while also offering full control over both default gateways and public IP address settings.
Now, virtual machines can be powered on at Storagepipe’s DR site, without needing to modify any IP configurations. The Veeam network extension, supplied and maintained by Storagepipe, will act as your VM’s new default gateway.
Emergency Web Portal
When a data disaster occurs, critical incident information can be quickly accessed through Storagepipe’s Veeam Replication for DRaaS online portal. Because emergencies are stressful, this portal has been designed to quickly present all of the most important information in a very simple interface. Storagepipe’s emergency portal provides peace of mind during times of panic.
