Does Veeam support Hyper-V?

Veeam Backup & Replication lets you perform on-site Hyper-V replication for High Availability (HA) scenarios and remote (off-site) replication for disaster recovery (DR) scenarios.

What is the difference between backup and replication Veeam?

The backup copy job allows you to have an independent backup chain at the secondary location. The replication allows you to have another copy of a VM which can be started automatically in case of disaster.

What is Hyper-V replication?

Hyper-V Replica is a free in-built feature in Hyper-V 3.0 for disaster recovery. Hyper-V replication enables you to set up a Virtual Machine to replicate from one Hyper-V host to another Hyper-V Host which you can recover easily within minutes in case of a disaster.

How do I add Hyper-V to Veeam?

Can Veeam run on a virtual machine?

Yes, you can install Veeam on VM and it doesn’t apply limitations.

Is replication better than backup?

Replication in computing is more than just backup software. It also provides full-scale disaster recovery. Designed with the worst-case scenario in mind, replication is the continuous synchronization and maintenance of duplicate databases.

What are the benefits of Hyper-V replica?

Hyper-V replication allow your environment to replicate from one virtual machine to another virtual machine environment without the need for additional cost of an appliance. Hyper-V Replication helps with both planned and unplanned fail over situations by having a fail over to protect the virtual machine.

What port does Hyper-V replication use?

HTTP port 80 and HTTPS port 443 are, by default, enabled in the firewall exception on the Replica Server. If you change the port number here, you must be sure to modify the existing Hyper-V Replica firewall rule and then enable the firewall exception so the Replica Server can receive the packets from Primary Server.

How does Veeam Backup and replication work for Hyper-V?

User Guide for Microsoft Hyper-V. In addition to VM backups, you can create VM replicas with Veeam Backup & Replication. When you replicate a VM, Veeam Backup & Replication creates an exact copy of the VM in the native Microsoft Hyper-V format on a spare host, and maintains this copy in sync with the original VM.

Can a Hyper-V Server be a proxy for Veeam?

The pros of On-Host proxies do outweigh the cons a lot. Every Hyper-V server added to Veeam Backup & Replication will be installed with the Veeam On-Host proxy role automatically. The OS is defined by your Hyper-V infrastructure.

Where does a replication job point to in Veeam?

When you create a replication job, you should point it to a backup repository in the DR site. During the initial synchronization, Veeam Backup & Replication accesses the backup repository where the replica seed is located, and restores the VM from the backup. The restored VM is registered on the target host in the DR site.

What does failover and failback in Veeam mean?

Failback is a process of returning from the VM replica to the original VM. Veeam Backup & Replication provides the following failover and failback operations: When you perform failover, you shift all processes from the original VM in the production site to the VM replica in the disaster recovery site.
