The machine where Orchestrator will be deployed must meet the necessary hardware and software requirements. In addition to Orchestrator functions, the Orchestrator server can function as a Veeam Backup & Replication server and a Veeam ONE server and, if used in this way, must have sufficient resources provided.
Consider the following limitations:
Hardware requirements depend on the size of the managed infrastructure. For more information, see Hardware Recommendations.
Only 64-bit versions of the following operating systems are supported:
Orchestrator can be installed on a Windows Server OS, either domain-joined or in a workgroup.
Local and remote installations of the following versions of Microsoft SQL Server are supported:
Note: It is not recommended to use the Express Edition in any production Orchestrator deployments — it should be used for product evaluation only.
Veeam Orchestrator Agent
An Orchestrator agent is required to trigger orchestration commands on remote Veeam Backup & Replication servers. The remote Veeam Backup & Replication server must meet the following requirements:
All components will be installed during setup.
For inline editing of report templates, Microsoft Word from Microsoft Office 2010 SP2 or later is required.
