Veeam Availability Orchestrator (VAO) extends the functionality of Veeam Availability Suite to orchestrate disaster recovery (DR) tasks, allowing DR failover and restore plan creation, documentation, testing and execution in VMware vSphere environments.
Veeam Availability Orchestrator leverages the backup, replication, failover and restore capabilities of Veeam Backup & Replication. It allows you to build DR workflows to automate failover and restore 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compliance requirements — generate and automatically update documentation for DR procedures to eliminate the problem of outdated DR plans.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 and restore operations for Veeam Backup & Replication backups and replicas.
- Prove recoverability — build test schedules to automate the verification of failover and restore plans, with isolated and low-impact testing of VM replicas and backups, and the applications they run.
