Veeam Cloud Connect – Veeam PN Setup Configuration

Veeam PN can be used as a VPN for DR access for Veeam Cloud Connect.

In this guide, I will walk through the steps to download, install and configure the appliance. It will then be replicated to your Veeam Cloud Connect provider and pre-configured by YOU, ready for any failovers. This is a four-step guide, with a new document published every week.

Depending on your environment (VMware / Hyper-V), this process to import the appliance will be a little different. I will demonstrate the process to import the appliance for both hypervisors, but will show the configuration on VMware.

Hyper-V Appliance Import

I will have shared a ZIP file with you containing the ‘vhdx’ required to build the appliance. Once you have downloaded the file onto your Hyper-V server, you are ready to begin.

The first step is to create a new VM. We will name it ‘VeeamHUB’ for this demonstration:

 

Veeam PN Setup Configuration

 

This VM should be configured with the following specifications:

  • Generation 1
  • 1024MB of RAM
  • 1 virtual processor
  • Connected to the same network as the VMs being replicated.

When it comes to connecting the ‘Virtual Hard Disk’, you should select ‘Use an existing virtual hard disk’ and select the VHDX, which was included in the ZIP file provided.

You are now done and the VM should boot as normal ready for the OS configuration.

 

Veeam PN Setup Configuration
VMware Appliance Import

The VMware appliance importation is simpler than the Hyper-V import. To begin with, save the .OVA file to an accessible part of your network. Once that is done, you can begin the import process. This can be done in the vSphere Web Client of the vSphere Client. For this demonstration, we will deploy the appliance through the normal vSphere Client.

First, select ‘File’ and the ‘Deploy OVF Template’

Veeam PN Setup Configuration

 

You can then browse to the location you saved the OVA file:

 

Veeam PN Setup Configuration

 

The name, host and cluster can be chosen by yourself. Once again, please ensure the Veeam PN appliance is located on the same network as the VMs you are replicating to the Veeam Cloud Connect platform.   Once finished, please power on the appliance ready to begin the configuration.

Configuring Veeam PN appliance network settings

Once the appliance has booted, you can login with the default credentials found in the following KB article: https://www.veeam.com/kb2271 Once logged in, the first thing we need to change is the network settings.

This can be done by editing the ‘interfaces’ file using the following commands: vi/etc/network/interfaces. Once you are in the ‘Interfaces’ file, press ‘I’ to ‘insert’ and edit the file as follows:

 

Veeam PN Setup Configuration

 

Once you have finished editing the file press ‘Esc’ then ‘:wq!’ (To write the changes and quit) I find a reboot is required sometimes to confirm the network changes, implement if required.

Part two in this series will show how to configure the Veeam PN appliance portal settings.

Top challenges for software developers

As a SaaS hero, we’re sure you’ve encountered and defeated your fair share of challenges when it comes to developing and hosting your application online.

Over the last few years online software hosting has grown from strength to strength and is now undoubtedly the fastest growing element under the cloud computing umbrella. This staggering growth is due to both a change in customer demands and the efficiency of new technology.

The benefits

SaaS superheroSome of the more popular benefits from Software as a Service driving the change include; lower cost of entry for both end users and developers, pay as you grow hosting, lower cost of ownership and higher end user adoption rates.

Although SaaS is one of the fastest growing technologies, there are still a few common issues that software developers face when exploring deployment, but in the end, the benefits far outweigh the complications.

I’ve compiled this blog together to hopefully help and prepare you to make your transition to the cloud as smooth as possible.

Choosing the right partner

For the majority of businesses, partnering with a cloud hosting provider is a no brainer in terms of the cost and service benefits received, but with seemingly hundreds of providers shouting ‘pick me’, ‘pick me’, how do you narrow down your search for one that suits you?

Information is power and research is its sidekick, the only true way of knowing if a cloud provider is a natural fit for your business is to investigate them. It sounds simple but it’s actually surprising how many companies simply go for the cheapest provider, but unfortunately the well-known saying ‘buy cheap, buy twice’ is also true with the cloud.

What reputation does the provider have? Have you looked at their terms and conditions? Are they UK based or international? What are their support levels? Are they available 2/4×7? How do they protect your data?

All these questions are just the tip of the iceberg and a reputable provider will be more than happy to sit down with you and discuss your business requirements.

Customer expectations

Customers, service providers and employers can often be a victim of crossed wires in regards to expectations. It’s important that all parties know what their role is in the transition and how it will be managed. If your existing customers are migrating over to the cloud, they need to be fully briefed on any changes that will be made and what it means for them in both the short term and the long term. This is something that personally, as a service provider, we help with, but you may have to explore this with other vendors.

Handing over the reigns

So you’re all ready to migrate, everything is planned and scheduled but you have to release control of the hosting to your new provider. Even if you’ve selected the best provider in the world to host your software, there is always going to be a bit of reluctance to the change! Taking a leap of faith will pay off in the end, as SaaS is only anticipated to grow, it would be crazy not to try it and the right vendor will be able to mitigate all of your concerns.

Want to SaaS?

If you’re interested in exploring software as a service with virtualDCS, we’re more than happy to offer you a free proof of concept and for you to try the solution for free, with free business advice and no setup costs.

Do you have cloud superhero potential?

With virtualDCS, becoming an IT superhero isn’t as daunting as it seems and whether you realise it or not you’re already completing extraordinary feats.

You’re often already completing heroic tasks, rescuing customers and putting out multiple fires on a daily basis in an effort to keep your department running smoothly. We’re currently helping managers all over the world become cloud superheroes, with the ability to pilot their systems more efficiently, protect their business data and defeat potential threats.

As an IT manager do you have any of the following powers?

Super speed

cloud-superhero

Do you have the ability to jump great heights from one task to another? Managers often have to be able to flick between tasks, monitor systems and staff under rapid time constraints. If so, you’ve got super speed.

Shapeshifting

The IT world is constantly changing, do you have to learn new skills daily and frequently change your role to fit around new technology? You can shapeshift.

Super strength

Have you ever pulled all-nighters and spent hours in front of the PC to be able to solve customer issues? What about lifting heavy equipment? You’ve got super strength.

Super senses

Can you immediately tell when something is wrong? Do you have a funny feeling when something is about to break? Gut instinct can play a great role in being a superhero. You’ve got super sense.

League management

Do you have to manage a team of heroes, finding their hidden talents and helping them reach their potential, solving customer issues along the way? You’ve got the charisma.

Anyone has the potential to become an IT superhero, especially with our team on your side. With virtualDCS as a sidekick, we’re here to back you up and we can provide you with a number of tools to help, from infrastructure hosting to managed services and Veeam Cloud Connect.

Blue skies ahead: new apprentice for cloud computing experts virtualDCS

As apprenticeship popularity continues to grow across the UK, virtualDCS welcomes Megan Barnett to the team, where she’ll be completing a business administration course.

This will be the fourth apprentice to join the company with others progressing into advanced roles within the group. In her new role, Megan will gain a variety of skills completing a number of tasks -from helping to further the company’s ISO accreditation and processes to product development.

Meg-BarnettApprenticeships are now one of the most popular pathways for students taking the next step in their career, with many of them choosing to ‘learn on the job’ as opposed to completing A-levels or a degree. From 2015-2016 there was a total of 904,800 apprentices employed within England alone, a huge increase from 871,000 the year before.

These amazing statistics are only set to rise, as, by 2020, the government aims to grow the number to a total of 3 million yearly apprenticeships. virtualDCS is proud to be one of the organisations driving these opportunities forward.

Peter Bowers, sales director at virtualDCS said:

“As a company, we’re wholeheartedly behind the apprenticeship concept, it makes much more sense for us to have an employee learn while working and have a direct impact on the company from the start. It also gives us an opportunity to impart our knowledge, creating a new generation of cloud experts while shaping their skills in a way to benefit virtualDCS.

Now we’ve had a number of apprentices, I can only see this figure rising, especially with the current trends and we look forward to more joining the team.”

Megan also commented on her new role:

“For me, picking an apprenticeship was a ‘no-brainer’ and it just made sense. I’ve always had a passion for business and I decided that rather than go to university and pay expensive tuition fees to study, I could actually go out there and live it. I wanted to complete an apprenticeship with a business that could help me grow personally and professionally, while also earning a wage.

I’ve been here for a couple of weeks now, and I’m really excited to get fully settled in, everyone is really friendly and they’ve got great relationships with customers as well. I’ve always been interested in technology and business management, so working with virtualDCS is the perfect combination for me.”

The team were looking for an exceptional candidate to fill the position, which is why they turned to QA, the market leader in apprenticeship placements.

Ben Pike, Managing Director of QA Apprenticeship commented on Meg’s appointment saying that:

“We passionately believe in the positive impact that our apprentices have in their tech and business roles, and are thankful to employers like virtualDCS, who support apprentices to fast-track their careers.”
