Veeam Availability Orchestrator v2 expands DR capabilities

Veeam Availability Orchestrator v2 expands DR capabilities Veeam Software

Veeam Availability Orchestrator v2 brings orchestration and automation capabilities to a broader set of applications and VMs.

The expanded capabilities of Veeam Availability Orchestrator v2 means the Veeam Availability Platform now provides comprehensive disaster recovery, operational recovery and platform migrations to any organisation using Veeam’s proven backup and replication capabilities, according to the company.

"Our new version of Veeam Availability Orchestrator eliminates the challenges of manual processes by introducing reliable orchestrated recovery of production VMs, whether they’re protected by backups or replicas," said Veeam vice president of product strategy Danny Allan.

"This also includes the ability to quickly and efficiently leverage protection data to prove recoverability and compliance, whether standards are imposed internally or by governing regulations like HIPAA, SOX, GDPR and more."

Approximately 80% of businesses experienced an incident during the past two years that required use of an IT DR plan, according to Gartner. The new version of Veeam Availability Orchestrator provides a way to automatically test, document and reliably recover entire sites, as well as individual workloads from backups in a completely orchestrated way, drastically lowering the total cost of ownership of disaster recovery.

The orchestration and automation for using vSphere virtual machine backups for true disaster recovery using Veeam's instant VM recovery feature is said to be unique. In essence, the VM backup is activated in place to minimise downtime, then the running workload is live-migrated to the intended location.

"No one else in the backup industry is doing this," said Allan.

It enables organisations of all sizes to achieve comprehensive and compliant DR for all their applications and data, Veeam officials said.

Other highlighted features of Veeam Availability Orchestrator v2 include dynamic documentation that can be used to prove to C-suite executives that SLAs are being met, automated testing (in support of DevOps, patch and upgrade testing, analytics and others), and advanced delegation and role-based access control allowing business units and other groups to manage their own data.

Active Vs. Passive DWDM Solutions

An active approach to your growing optical transport network & connectivity needs.

Building dark fibre network infrastructure using WDM technology used to be considered a complex challenge that only carriers have the means to implement.

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
