How to Deploy VMware Backup and Disaster Recovery
a, Deploy AhsayCBS backup server in your datacenter. This AhsayCBS machine has to be very powerful for simultaneously spin-up multiple guest VMs.
b, Provision a VMware ESXi host in your datacenter as a DR host.
c, Prepare an AhsayOBM machine in datacenter to backup the running VMs on the DR host.
d, We also suggest you to manage the DNS settings for the production VMs so that you can quickly change the settings during disaster recovery.
e, In your live’s environment, use free remote monitoring tool like Zabbix to monitor the health of your customer’s production host.
1, For each guest VM, create a VMware backup set with AhsayOBM installed on the vCenter or a standalone machine that is on the same network as the production VMware ESXi host. Enable Granular Restore and VM Run Direct features in the backup set, and set to back up to two destinations, one to local / mapped drive, and the other to AhsayCBS backup server in datacenter.
2, When you need to restore individual files within a backed up VM, use the Granular Restore feature to open and/or restore the desired files quickly, without the need to spin-up the whole backed up VM.
3, If a particular VM failed on the production VMware ESXi host, use the VM Run Direct feature to spin-up the backed up VM from the local backup destination to the production ESXi host, and at the same time migrate the VM back to the host with our Live Migration feature.
4, When a disaster strikes the whole production ESXi host, spin-up all the backed up VMs on the DR host through AhsayCBS’ agentless restore feature within minutes, and at the same time migrate those VMs to the DR host with our Live Migration feature.
5, After all the backed up VMs are migrated to the DR host, edit the DNS records to fail over the traffic to the spun-up VMs on your DR host.
6, Use the AhsayOBM machine in your datacenter to keep backing up the guest VMs running on the DR host.
7, After customer’s site has been restored with all the original machines in place, customer can take the datacenter’s guest VMs backup set to restore the VMs to the original production VMware ESXi host.
8, Change the DNS records to switch the traffic of the VMs from the DR host to the original production host
