Running Cloud Failover Plan

In this article

    With a cloud failover plan, the SP can perform full site failover upon tenant request at any time. During full site failover, tenant VMs fail over to their replicas on the cloud host one by one, as a group. You can fail over to the most recent VM state or select the necessary restore point for VMs in the cloud failover plan.

    The SP can run a tenant's cloud failover plan from the Veeam Backup & Replication console on the SP Veeam backup server.

    To fail over to the VM replicas latest restore point:

    1. Open the Cloud Connect view.
    2. In the inventory pane, click Replicas > Failover Plans.
    3. In the working area, click the necessary cloud failover plan and click Start on the ribbon or right-click the necessary cloud failover plan and select Start.
