Getting Started with Veeam Cloud Connect Replication
To provide Disaster Recovery as a Service through image-based VM replication to tenants, the SP must set up the Veeam Cloud Connect Replication infrastructure.
Before the SP starts configuring the Veeam Cloud Connect Replication infrastructure, they must consider limitations for hardware plans. Limitations apply to virtualization hosts whose resources the SP plans to expose as a replication target to tenants. To learn more, see Adding Hardware Plans: Before You Begin.
As part of the configuration process, the SP must perform the following tasks:
- Deploy the SP Veeam backup server.
- Set up TLS certificates.
- Create cloud gateways.
- Allocate VLANs for cloud networking.
- Allocate a pool of public IP addresses for full site failover.
- Configure hardware plans.
- Specify credentials for network extension appliances.
- [Optional] Deploy Veeam Cloud Connect Portal.
- [Optional] Configure target WAN accelerators.
- Register tenant accounts.
- Communicate information about the tenant account and gateway to all tenants who plan to connect to the SP.
The SP can also allocate VMware vCloud Director resources as replication resources to the tenant. To learn more, see vCloud Director Support.
Once the SP has configured necessary components, tenants can add the SP to their Veeam Backup & Replication consoles and use cloud hosts allocated to them in the SP Veeam Cloud Connect infrastructure.
