Business benefits

The primary business benefits of OneNet’s Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) offering follow:

  • Rapid and immediate recovery – As you can never be sure when a disaster might strike your business, it is vital to consider just how long you can sustain any downtime?   Depending on the nature of your business, every minute of downtime could potentially result in losses for your organisation.
  • Recovery risk reduced - Your IT risk from a disaster is largely eliminated with a comprehensive OneNet DRaaS solution in place. If a disaster were to strike, full restoration to normal IT operations would be available within minutes.
  • No IT resources required – OneNet’s DRaaS uses its own scalable IT infrastructure, which means that you are not required to make any capital investment in hardware and software. In other words, OneNet’s DRaaS requires far fewer operational and capital resources.

Veeam Replication in Detail

OneNet solution

OneNet provides a range of disaster recovery services to enable you to protect your most valuable digital assets and ensure that your business can recover from whatever disaster occurs to carry on business as usual.

OneNet’s Disaster Recovery as a Service offering helps to overcome the DR investment challenge as a cloud-based solution fits perfectly. By renting IT resources from OneNet on a “pay-as-you-go” business model, you can achieve the same outcome as if you made a full DR investment in IT assets.

IT infrastructure assets required for a full DR capability, such as processor, RAM, data storage and networking are provided by OneNet without your requiring any capital expenditure or the costs and burden of designing and deploying your own DR site.

Technical solution

OneNet’s Disaster Recovery as a Service offering employs Veaam’s industry-leading backup technology. Technical information follows: 

  • Simplicity - Virtual Machine (VM) replication is made through Veeam’s Cloud Connect is easy-to-use and straight forward to set up, thanks to a simple single port connectivity via a secure, reliable SSL/TLS connection to OneNet.
  • No VPN connections - There is no need to set up and maintain VPN connections, or open multiple ports in your firewalls.   Fortunately, ALL traffic is encapsulated, including replication management traffic, actual VM data transfers and even inter-VM communication during partial failovers, into the single port.  Once you subscribe to OneNet’s DRaaS and connect to OneNet’s data centres, you will see a virtual cloud host, and a multi-tenant view of your assigned DR site resources with CPU, RAM, storage and networking resource allocation. A cloud host serves as the replication target for the replication jobs that you have set up.
  • Multiple failover options - Failover includes multiple options. Obviously, a full site failover is available, as well as a partial site failover. This means that you may failover just a portion of your workloads while other VMs are still running in the production site.  This advanced capability to perform partial failovers results from a built-in network extension appliance, which simplifies networking complexity.  The system preserves communication between running VMs, regardless of physical location. Accordingly, unlike other solutions, Veeam Cloud Connect Replication will not only manage data replication, but also the network connections between the two sites.
