The virtual lab is an isolated virtual environment in which Veeam Backup & Replication verifies VMs. In the virtual lab, Veeam Backup & Replication starts VMs from the application group and the verified VM. The virtual lab is used not only for the SureBackup verification procedure, but also for U-AIR and On-Demand Sandbox.
The virtual lab does not require that you provision extra resources for it. You can deploy the virtual lab on any ESX(i) host in your virtual environment.
The virtual lab is fully fenced off from the production environment. The network configuration of the virtual lab mirrors the network configuration of the production environment. For example, if verified VMs and VMs from the application group are located in two logical networks in the production environment, the virtual lab will also have two networks. The networks in the virtual lab will be mapped to corresponding production networks.
VMs in isolated networks have the same IP addresses as in the production network. This lets VMs in the virtual lab function just as if they function in the production environment.
