You can use the scenario if you have a number of Production sites (each of these sites may have its own Veeam Backup & Replication server that protects its workloads). This scenario implies that you can also delegate permissions on failover procedures to other users.
This scenario is an extended example of the Advanced Deployment Mode.
In this deployment scenario, VAO sites have the following infrastructure components deployed:
- DR VAO server — provides failover plan management, testing and execution.
- Production VAO servers — collect data on the VM inventory and send this data to the VAO server in the DR site.
- Veeam Backup & Replication server — handles replication jobs and is used for failover orchestration.
The diagram below illustrates the deployment scenario with two Production sites (CORP and ROBO) and one DR site.
The vCenter Server can be shared across all sites, or you can have a dedicated vCenter Server for each site. Regardless of the source site/vCenter Server for VM inventory, plans are always designed, tested and executed in the VAO UI in the DR site.
