To create a hyper-V backup, providing protection, at least at the host level, is essential to capture all Hyper-V virtual machines. This includes their data, configuration, and storage.
Specialized software, such as Second Colony DRaaS managed by Hive, can make this process easier and well-coordinated. It's capable of preparing the Hyper-V environment for backup by communicating with Microsoft VSS.
The biggest advantage here is that you'll ensure consistent VM backups that capture all essential data. This also lets you choose the ideal recovery option that matches your recovery requirements and objectives. Here's how the process goes in more detail:
Hyper-V offers the following backups:
Since Hyper-V disaster recovery plans make creating a backup and replica of the same VM for HA and DR purposes mandatory, the virtual infrastructure becomes overloaded. This also means extra work for your production site since you'll need two independent VM snapshots and move data from the original site twice.
Second Colony DRaaS uses a flexible on-site or remote recovery method and a replica from the backup storage to take some of the work off the production environment.
It also keeps the impact on production at a minimum by using an existing backup in the backup repository as a data source instead of reading VM data from hosts and storage in the production environment.
In a failover event, Second Colony DRaaS lets you recover your VM in a matter of seconds by recovering the VM replica to the required restore point and moving all I/O processes from the original VM to its replica.
Hyper-V replication lets you create Hyper-V VM replicas that you can use to recover data in case of disasters. Some of the benefits include:
Yes, you can back up VMs that are SQL or MS Exchange with the Veeam Backup & Replication solution.
All you have to do is deploy the required VM tools to the VM using HIVE. It's also worth noting that Hyper-V VMs will conduct this by default without requiring an agent on the guest VM.
Yes, with the on-demand DataLabs Sandbox, you can run test recovery procedures to ensure that your backups are fully restorable. You can either execute a full restore and boot up the VM or verify the backup folder without adding your VM to the VM Manager.
It's also worth noting that the tests are conducted in an isolated environment that won't impact your live VMs.
