Veeam Cloud Connect – Failover Plan
Stage 1 – Creating a Failover Plan
In the event of your primary site being completely unavailable, it’s possible to completely Failover to the replicated VM using the web portal. In this scenario Veeam will connect the replicated VM to a separate internet facing network behind a hosted firewall using a pre-configured ‘Failover Plan’.
Create a ‘Failover Plan’ on your local Veeam server
Specify a name for the Failover Plan – multiple plans could be created for various scenarios.
Select the VMs to be powered on by this plan.
Specify the order on which the VMs are to be powered on (if required).
Set an IP address to be applied to the hosted network appliance – this provides routing between the internet facing and private networks.
Veeam can manage public IPs, however we will leave this blank as public IPs are assigned to the hosted firewall CTL provides.
Select ‘Finish’ and the plan is ready.
