Did you know you’re 30 minutes away from Orchestrated DR at any given moment?Veeam Availability Orchestrator takes just 20 minutes to configure, and it takes less than 10 minutes to create an Orchestration Plan, what we call your your fully documented and automated DR plan.Don’t believe me? I have proof! Those videos cover everything you need to get started after you have installed VAO, and run through the initial configuration wizard, which couldn’t be simpler.Here’s a few more tips I’ve discovered along the way and am sharing:Install the VAO agent on all of your Veeam Backup & Replication servers. Once you install the agent, VAO understands the jobs you already have configured, and can orchestrate their recovery. Simple! If you use NetApp storage, be sure to have your SnapMirrors configured ahead of time if they aren’t already. Once you add your storage systems, you guessed it, VAO understands the relationships you have and can orchestrate their recovery! vSphere Tags make t
In another Topic, I wrote about designing a Proxy In This Topic will see about the repository design.We need to consider The key recommendation is to follow the 3-2-1 rule. Calculate 1 core and 4GB RAM per repository task slot. The recommended minimum for a repository is 2 cores and 8GB RAM.Sizing The recommended amount of CPU for a repository is 1 core per concurrent configured task slot on a repository server. Configure at minimum a 2 core and 8GB RAM repository server to allow the operating system to be more responsive. When sizing task slots on a repository you have to understand when and how many task slots are consumed. Any write process will consume a task slot. So backing up 10 VMs in one job using per-job backup chains will only write one file (VBK/VIB) in the end - so it consumes one task slot. Running the same backup job with per-VM backup files will create one file per VM and thus can leverage up to 10 tasks slots (when available). Backup Copy Jobs, Agent Backups and

What can I do, if the storage volume on which my Office 365 backups reside is corrupted, deleted or somehow lost ? That was the question I faced myself with. So I went into the lab to try out a few things ! In this blog post I’m going to show you how to recover a failed Veeam Backup for Office 356 repository. In addition to recover a failed repository, I’m also going to show you how to properly back up VBO repositories. Within this blog post, I will abbreviate Veeam Backup for Office 365 with VBO. Veeam Backup & Replication is abbreviated with VBR. However, lets jump into the lab and the scenario.The lab setupDue to the fact, that I still don’t have a “proper” homelab, I’m using VMware Workstation for this scenario.My lab environment for testing this case, consists of 2 virtual machines. One virtual machine is hosting VBR and the other one is hosting VBO.The VBO server itself, has an additional partition on which all backup repositories reside. All my backup jobs go into separate f
Best Practices In my opinion it is very important to keep this best practice in mind If the integration API is unavailable due to licensing restrictions, or if any other deduplication appliance is used, the appliance should be considered non-integrated.In order to optimize throughput for deduplication appliances, please use the following configuration guidelines: Job configurationThe following settings are configured in the backup job “Edit” wizard under Storage > Advanced. Options not defined in this table are optional and not related to backup repositories using deduplication storage.Setting Value Tab: Backup Backup mode Incremental Create synthetic full backups periodically Enabled - if integrated Transform previous backup chains into rollbacks Disabled Create active full backups periodically Enabled - if non-integrated Tab: Maintenance Perform backup file health check Disabled Defragment and compact full backup file Disabled Tab: Storage Ena
