Orchestrator uses the failover and data recovery functionality provided by Veeam Backup & Replication to automate recovery actions. In addition, Orchestrator provides vSphere VM recovery orchestration based on replicated storage snapshots created on NetApp and HPE storage systems. For these purposes, Orchestrator offers 5 types of recovery plans:
- Replica plans — consist of vSphere VMs that should be failed over to replicas.
- CDP replica plans — consist of vSphere VMs that should be failed over to continuous data protection (CDP) replicas.
- Restore plans — consist of vSphere VM and Veeam agent backups that should be recovered to a VMware vSphere environment.
