Veeam Availability Orchestrator (VAO) extends the functionality of Veeam Availability Suite to orchestrate disaster recovery (DR) tasks, allowing DR failover plan creation, documentation, testing and execution in VMware vSphere environments.
Veeam Availability Orchestrator leverages the replication and failover capabilities of Veeam Backup & Replication. It allows you to build DR workflows to automate failover processes, eliminating error-prone manual steps.
Veeam Availability Orchestrator also provides reporting capabilities that let enterprises document their DR plans to meet compliance requirements.
With Veeam Availability Orchestrator, you can do the following:
- Meet disaster recovery compliance requirements — generate and automatically update documentation for DR procedures to eliminate the problem of outdated DR plans.
- Automate DR procedures — create workflows that orchestrate failover operations for Veeam Backup & Replication replicas.
- Prove recoverability of workloads — build test schedules to automate the verification of failover plans, with isolated and low-impact testing of VM replicas and the applications they run.
