Veeam Availability Console 3.0 Reference Architecture

Hi, this is the Veeam Availability Console 3.0 Reference Architecture.

In this book, we will guide you through the design and deployment of a complete VAC environment, to make you ready to start your Veeam managed services.

In the first chapter 1. Introduction, we will introduce Veeam Availability Console (VAC), its capabilities and its use cases/scenario.

Then, in 2. Architecture, we will explain VAC modular architecture, with multiple services combined together. In this chapter we will analyse them and see how to better configure and manage them. Also, we will explain its interaction with Veeam Cloud Connect.

In chapter 3. Simple deployment, we will explain the simple deployment of VAC into a single machine, useful for managing small environments.

In chapter 4. Setup we will discuss initial setup, basic configurations and some security best practices; also, we will talk about protecting VAC itself.

When your business grow, also VAC needs to grow. It’s time to start to split the Simple deployment into multiple systems. In chapter 5. Modular deployment we’ll take a look at how to migrate your SQL Server, and how to publish the Web Service into a dedicated machine.

You are ready to rule the world, and you need the full power of VAC to do so. In chapter 6. Scale-out deployment we will explain how to build a fully redundant and scalable VAC system.

Also, don’t miss all the additional chapters dedicated to specific configurations and operations.

Enjoy the book, Luca
