    Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager and Veeam Backup & Replication – Better Together

    IntroductionProtecting your infrastructure is a challenging task today. Old backup methods

    don’t work well in modern environments. These old backup methods worked

    for many years in the client-server model with lots of physical servers. But

    datacenters are changing and they are changing rapidly. New technologies

    have enhanced capabilities, which have dramatically changed the ways of

    supporting customers, end users and business.

    There are two main reasons why this change is occurring.

    Virtualization is the rst reason. A few of years ago the concept of virtualizationcame into infrastructures. The idea behind virtualization is pretty simple: it is a

    way to get more out of the resources you have on physical servers. Instead of

    having one physical server for one workload, you can run multiple workloads

    within one physical box. In other words, you can run multiple servers on onephysical server. While the idea itself is simple, its impact has dramatically

    changed the way IT environments run today.

    Over time, virtualization has grown in importance and is still growing today. Atrst, virtualization seemed targeted for a niche market, and data protection ofvirtual machines (VMs) was carried out in the traditional way (i.e., Bare Metal

    Restore), as it was for all other servers. Today, virtualization is the norm. The

    technologies have become mature and are increasingly being used in every size

    of business. Management tools have developed also and, with that, the second

    reason comes into sight.

    The private cloud is the next reason why protecting data has become more

    challenging. Thanks to the private cloud many businesses are now introducing

    principles such as self-service, elasticity and more into their datacenters. While

    this is a good thing for end users and customers, it also brings increased

    agility to the business. However, it is becoming a tremendous challenge for IT

    professionals around the world who are trying to protect their infrastructures

    and business data in ways that are affordable and non-complex.

    The challenge

    The new ways of designing datacenters present new challenges and difculties toIT professionals. One of these challenges is backup and data protection. As alreadystated, we used to protect every server’s data and system state and, in some cases,

    even the entire system through the concept of Bare Metal Restore. Virtualization has

    changed this, because it allows IT professionals to rapidly create new VMs without

    the backup team even knowing that there are new servers in the infrastructure.

    With the introduction of the private cloud and its principles, data protection, roles


  • 8/16/2019 Veeam Bar Dpm


    Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager and Veeam Backup & Replication – Better Together

    and responsibilities have become more difcult. Now customers and end users cancreate their own VMs, including data that needs to be protected. The private cloud

    is provided by the internal IT staff, but there is a great new challenge addressing the

    location of self-service data.

    Who needs data protection?

    There may be a perception that you don’t need data protection anymore. In fact,

    many IT Professionals are complaining that they need to provide good reasons to

    keep their datacenters protected.

    As decision makers are spending a lot of money and effort in today’s resiliencesystems—such as clustering, replication, taking snapshots on their shared networks,

    hardware virtualization and more—they wonder if they still need backup when they

    are already protected with all those other technologies.

    While these are great defense systems that will keep your systems up-and-running

    as much as possible, they will not protect you against other issues, such as:

    • data corruption

    • major natural disasters

    • equipment failure

    • theft or human errors

    • malware

    • facility or site-related failures

    • platform failures (storage, operating system or networking)In short, you still need a good backup plan, a disaster recovery plan and, most

    important, a good recovery plan.

    Choosing the right strategy for the right technology

    Many years ago I had one backup solution to protect my entire environment.

    The data on every server in my environment was protected and at the same

    time there were backups of the system state of those physical boxes. Taking

    backups required us to have backup windows at convenient times and we

    needed many hours during the workweek to check our backups. Best practices

    at the time required us to test backups at least once a year to see if the data wasrecoverable—this procedure could take days. And recovering a system state froma server to new or other hardware, when necessary, could be a very difcult task.

    Virtualization technology has provided new ways of protecting servers and

    workloads. Instead of protecting system states of physical servers, you can now

    protect an entire VM and recover it to any other host. This exibility gives ITprofessionals more options for creating disaster recovery plans and a means to

    test the plans at regular intervals.

    Backup and recovery technology has also dramatically improved. There was

    a time that the prevailing logic was to back up or otherwise provide data

    protection directly to tape. Then, disk technologies started to be used in a data

    protection context, providing new options. This improved backup times and

    allowed fast recovery. New technologies such as VSS (Volume Shadow Copy

  • 8/16/2019 Veeam Bar Dpm


    Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager and Veeam Backup & Replication – Better Together

    services) meant that consistent backups could be performed any time of the day

    without interrupting the day-to-day service of that system.

    Backup software that’s specically built for virtualization also gives you additional

    restore capabilities, and this is central to this white paper.

    The strategyIn this white paper, I introduce a strategy that leverages two solutions. One

    solution provides a protection strategy at the virtual infrastructure level while

    the other solution uses an in-guest agent to protect specic workloads such asSQL, Exchange, SharePoint and more. Together, the two solutions provide a great

    protection solution with near continuous backup, quick recovery possibilities and

    an easy way to build a disaster recovery plan.

    An exampleTo explain this strategy, I will work with an example infrastructure to show the

    enhanced protection options available with the two solutions together .

    Figure 1: Architectural overview of the example

    This example contains four physical servers. Three of these servers are running

    Windows Server 2012 with Hyper-V enabled as a role. The three servers are

    clustered and attached to a Storage Area Network (SAN), which runs the CSV² forthe cluster.

    The fourth physical server will host Veeam Backup & Replication™.

    The example virtual infrastructure consists of:

    • Two Active Directory domain controllers (DC01 and DC02) that are notpermitted to run at the same hypervisor because of the anti-afnity rules

    • One SQL Server (SQL01) system that hosts production databases, whichprovide the following critical services:

     This is an example. Exact conguration and use cases depend on the business requirements

    ² CSV: Clustered Shared Volume: A shared disk containing an NTFS volume that is made accessiblefor read and write operations by all nodes within a Windows Server Failover Cluster

     - DB_ERP (a database for the ERP software)

     - DB_WAGES (a database that holds the wages information for theemployees)

     - All the SharePoint databases• Two Exchange Server systems (EXC01 and EXC02) that are congured in a

    DAG³ conguration

    • One SharePoint front-end server (SHAREPOINT01)

    • One webserver (WWW01) that holds a few .NET applications that have theirdatabases running on SQL01

    • One Data Protection Manager server (DPM01)

    • One virtual server with a pass-through disk⁴ (PASSTHROUGH01)

    • One physical server with a legacy application (which can’t be run virtually) on(LEGACY01)

    Although this is a small environment, it serves as a good example to identify thecriticality of important components typical in many infrastructures. And now forthe basics of the two solutions:

    Virtualization backups

    Veeam Backup & Replication is a Modern Data Protection™ solution Built for

    Virtualization™ that delivers powerful, easy-to-use and affordable data protection

    for both VMware and Hyper-V. Veeam Backup & Replication talks directly to the

    virtual infrastructure, providing advantages such as:• Knowledge of the VMs and the hosts they run on

    • Knowledge of the virtual storage and what needs to be protected

    • The ability to snapshot VMs and back them up with no downtime

    • The ability to protect only the VM disk blocks that have changed, reducingthe backup times and the amount of data backed up.

    Veeam Backup & Replication doesn’t require an agent and talks directly to the

    virtualization layer. In fact, Veeam was the rst backup vendor to support VADP (forVMware) and uses Microsoft VSS technology to create consistent VM backups.

    In-guest data backups

    Although Veeam Backup & Replication is Built for Virtualization, in-guestbackups are sometimes needed. Imagine that you have a SQL Server running in

    your infrastructure. The SQL administrators might need a backup as frequently

    as every 15 minutes and the ability to recover the data themselves. This use

    case may be better suited to a solution that is built specically for this kind of

    scenario. Microsoft’s System Center Data Protection Manager (SCDPM) is a

    protection solution that is known for its excellent capabilities of protecting SQL

    Server, Exchange Server, SharePoint Services and more.

    Figure 2: SCDPM 2012 SP1 general overview 

    SCDPM uses an agent inside a VM to talk to VSS writers, a component of

    Microsoft VSS technologies. This allows the solution to protect the data to disk

    as often as every 15 minutes. SCDPM can also protect to tape, a secondary

    SCDPM server or the cloud.

    An SCDPM strategy with Veeam

    Our example takes some considerations into account. The business requires

    specic SLA⁵, RTO⁶ and RPO⁷ deliverables:• SLA: Data from Exchange, SQL or SharePoint should be recovered withinfour hours after the request in the help desk system

    • RTO: In case of a failure, the most critical systems (email, SharePoint andSQL) should be up and running in 24 hours

    • RPO: In case of a disaster, the maximum loss of data is one hour

    The above deliverables assume that replacement hardware is available and

    already has the operating system and hypervisor running.

    Many things need to be taken into consideration for recovery after a disaster—

    passwords for administrators and service accounts, the ability to provisionservers, the availability of Internet lines and software installation media and more.

    This scenario starts from the point where an environment is ready to recover and

    all items are available to start recovering.

    SLA: Service Level Agreement is a part of a service contract where a service is formally defined 

    RTO: Recovery Time Objective is the time that a process must be restored after a disaster

    RPO: Recovery Point Objective is the maximum amount of time in which data may be lost

    Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager and Veeam Backup & Replication – Better Together

    Let’s start protectingBy combining Veeam Backup & Replication and SCDPM solutions, IT

    professionals have an excellent protection strategy that allows fast recovery,

    almost zero data loss and a great disaster recovery method.

    Protecting VMs with Veeam Backup & Replication

    After setting up the Veeam Backup & Replication server, the next step includessite-specic conguration: adding the hypervisors to the backup infrastructure,adding backup repositories and adding backup proxies. After the conguration isready, you can create the job.

    Figure 3: Overview of our backup infrastructure

    In the example, you will protect all the VMs in one job and schedule it daily at

    10 p.m.

    Figure 4: Scheduling options

  • 8/16/2019 Veeam Bar Dpm


    Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager and Veeam Backup & Replication – Better Together

    Because you’re using SCDPM to protect select critical application workloads

    inside the operating systems of individual VMs, you need to be certain that

    Veeam Backup & Replication won’t truncate the logs. Within the VSS framework,

    only one backup solution is permitted to truncate critical application logs.Because SCDPM will perform the workload protection every 15 minutes, it will

    manage log truncation.

    Therefore, in the backup job, it’s necessary to change the guest processing

    options so that they don’t interfere with the log truncation.

     Figure 5: Guest transaction log settings

    Now you have a backup job of the entire VM stack on a daily basis. At this point,there is robust application protection with SCDPM (discussed later) and all VMs

    are protected as an image with Veeam Backup & Replication. This leads to a

    number of different restore capabilities, delivering the most options in recovery


    Protecting in-guest data with System Center Data ProtectionManager 2012 SP1

    Now that all the VMs in the environment are protected with Veeam Backup &

    Replication, you will need to congure the in-guest data protection with SystemCenter Data Protection Manager 2012 SP1 for select critical applications.

    First, it’s necessary to perform some installation and conguration actions:

    • Install SCDPM 2012 SP1 on the server• Add storage to the storage pool

    • Deploy agents to the virtual machines

    After completing the above actions, one or more protection groups  need to becreated to dene the rules for protecting the data. Creating a protection groupdenes the RTO and RPO settings and length of the retention period. It alsodenes how many times a backup will be taken of the data.


  • 8/16/2019 Veeam Bar Dpm


    Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager and Veeam Backup & Replication – Better Together

    Figure 6: Retention, Synchronization and Recovery Points settings

    • In the example, a specic protection group is created for protecting SQLdatabases that has retention of ve days and a full recovery point three timesa day. And the closed logs⁸ have been synchronized (every 15 minutes to theDPM server for a possible recovery point every 15 minutes).

    Protection groups need to be created for all of other workloads that run in the


    In this example, protection groups are created to protect the le server data,Exchange databases, the system state of an Active Directory domain controller,the SharePoint data and conguration and the websites on WWW01 (throughsystem state)

    There are still a few more things to protect. One of the VMs (passthrough01) has

    a pass-through disk attached, which makes it impossible to protect with Veeam

    Backup & Replication. Therefore, this VM will be threaded as a physical server.

    And a protection group will be created in SCDPM to protect this server with theBare Metal Recover (BMR) option.

    Note: The Windows Server Backup feature must be enabled to do this!

     Figure 7: Server protected with Bare Metal Recovery and system state

    BMR (which automatically includes system state) will protect all of the critical

    volumes. A critical volume refers to the volumes present on the system, whichcontain the operating system (OS) and other les that are essential for the OS to

    function properly.

    Closed logs: SQL Server will close a log when it hits a certain size adjustable Those log files are transferred to the SCDPMserver It is the same principle used in SQL Server log shipping



  • 8/16/2019 Veeam Bar Dpm


    Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager and Veeam Backup & Replication – Better Together

    In addition to the BMR, the specic data needed to recover the applicationrunning on the Passthrough01 server will be protected. In the example, this will

    be the entire volume that represents that disk that will be protected.

    Finally, the last protection group that will be built is for the legacy physical server(legacy01). Since this is a real physical server, the strategy will be exactly the

    same as for the virtual server with the pass-through disk (passthrough01).

    Recovery possibilities with VeeamNow that the setup is complete and all of the VMs are protected through Veeam

    Backup & Replication and the specic data residing on those VM machines isprotected through SCDPM, I will explore the recovery options.

    VM recoveries

    Veeam offers a number of different recovery techniques for VMware and

    Hyper-V environments, including Instant VM Recovery™, full VM recovery, as

    well as recovery of VM les and guest les. There are additional specic recoveryoptions for applications, storage integration and web technologies.

    Figure 8: Recovery options for Hyper-V 

    A quick explanation on the different recovery methods:• Instant VM Recovery enables you to instantly start a VM directly from a

    backup le without retrieving it to the production storage before using therecovered VM. The data is transferred to production storage at the end of the

    recovery process, after the VM is up and running.

    • Full VM Recovery enables you to recover a VM from a backup le to itsoriginal or another location.

    • VM le recovery enables you to recover separate VM les (virtual disks,conguration les and more).

    • Windows le-level recovery enables you to recover individual Windows guestOS les (FAT, NTFS and ReFS le systems) from backups. Linux and otheroperating systems are supported for le-level recovery on VMware only.

  • 8/16/2019 Veeam Bar Dpm


    Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager and Veeam Backup & Replication – Better Together

    Two of these recovery options will t our purpose very well. There are manyother use cases for recovering VM les or guest les. I focus here specically onthe recovery of a Full VM and on Instant VM recovery

    Full VM recovery

    With full VM recovery you can restore an entire VM from a backup to the latest

    state or to any good known point in time.

     Figure 9: Choosing your recovery point 

    This means that you have to extract the full virtual image from the production

    storage. Veeam Backup & Replication will retrieve the data from the backup

    repository to the selected storage, register the VM on the chosen host and (if

    necessary) power on the VM.

    Figure 10: Choosing your restore mode


  • 8/16/2019 Veeam Bar Dpm


    Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager and Veeam Backup & Replication – Better Together

    Instant VM Recovery

    With Instant VM Recovery you can immediately restore a VM into your

    production environment by running it directly from the compressed and

    deduplicated backup le. Instant VM Recovery helps improve the RTO andminimize disruption and downtime of your production VM. With this process

    you can start a failed VM very quickly and migrate it to the production storage.

    Data Recoveries in SCDPM

    SCDPM 2012 SP1 offers a lot of recovery methods for specic workloads, such asExchange and SQL Server. This part describes a few recovery methods specic toSQL Server.

    Recovering SQL Server data provides a few options;

    • Recover the database to its original location

    • Recover the database with a new name to its original location or to a differentinstance of SQL Server

    • Recover the database to a different instance of SQL Server

    • Copy the database to a network folder

     Figure 11: Recovery options for a SQL database

    Some of these options are useful for specic scenarios like copy the database toa network folder. This gives SQL administrators the database (and log les if thisis not a recovery from an application recovery point) as at les, allowing adminsto move the database to other SQL instances or use the database in testing

    scenarios. Recovering the database with a new name or to another instance

    can also be useful for testing scenarios or when you want to nd out if you haverecoverable backups. The example mainly focuses on the option to Recover to

    original instance of SQL Server (Overwrite database).

    This option allows recovery of the full database every 15 minutes for the last ve

    days (remember the settings for synchronization, recovery point and retention inthe previous section on Protecting our in-guest data with SCDPM 2012 SP1.).


  • 8/16/2019 Veeam Bar Dpm


    Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager and Veeam Backup & Replication – Better Together

    You can recover the database and place it into one of two modes: operationalor non-operational. Operational means that the database will be running after

    the recovery and no further action from the SQL administrators is necessary.

    Leaving the database in non-operational mode allows the SQL administrators todo application-specic recovery with native administrative tools, like SQL ServerManagement Studio. This is certainly a great feature when the SQL admins

    request a specic Point in Time. You can recover the databases and the logs andthe SQL admins can work in SQL Server Management Studio.

     Figure 12: Database state options during recovery with SCDPM

    You now know how to recover specic workloads. The next part demonstrateshow easy it is to recover an entire server with Veeam Backup & Replication and

    recover the latest application data on it. But you still need to be able to recover

    the physical server (legacy01) and the VM that was treated like a physical server


    Since the application data is included in the protection group, you can easily

    restore that data exactly as for SQL or Exchange or others. But when you need to

    recover the full server, there is some more work to do.

    A good walkthrough guide to document your recovery process can be foundhere: http://blogs.technet.com/b/dpm/archive/2010/05/12/performing-a-bare-


    This guide is for SCDPM but is still valid for SCDPM

  • 8/16/2019 Veeam Bar Dpm


    Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager and Veeam Backup & Replication – Better Together

    After one of the VMs has been recovered, there may be an issue that the datarunning on it is 24 hours old and does not meet the SLAs and RPOs previouslycovered. With SCDPM in-guest backups, you can restore the latest data (worst

    case scenario 15 minutes) to the VM just recovered. The good part is that youdon’t need to do any additional work. Because you took a full VM backup with

    Veeam Backup & Replication, the in-guest agent used by SCDPM is running in

    the recovered VM. Therefore, you can start recovering the data straight away as

    discussed earlier in the section on Data Recoveries

    And this procedure can be started from the moment that one VM has beenrecovered. The following diagram illustrates this parallel workow:

     Figure 14: High-level overview of the DR plan

    As you can see in the workow (Figure 14), you can perform multiple recoveriesat the same time with a maximum data loss of 15 minutes. For the purpose

    of this white paper, it is important to note that different methods and options

    need to be chosen to perform this kind of recovery across different applications.

    The VM image is well protected and easily recovered with Veeam Backup &

    Replication, and if critical applications need frequent recovery options, SCDPM

    makes that an easy task. While this seems like a very easy workow, some ofthe recoveries might require some additional tasks. These things should betested upfront before there is a real disaster. The Virtual Lab in Veeam Backup &

    Replication offers an easy way to do this.

  • 8/16/2019 Veeam Bar Dpm


    Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager and Veeam Backup & Replication – Better Together

    Finally, you need to perform Bare Metal Recovery of the two servers as discussed

    in the section on Data Recoveries in SCDPM.

    Losing one important VM

    Let’s say that in this example the SQL Server is corrupted. After investigation,you decide that repairing the corruption will take too much time and you will

    probably not be able to x the issue. In that case, you want to recover the entireVM and afterward recover the latest data. In the worst case scenario, you will

    lose 15 minutes of data—well within the limits of your RPO.

    The scenario here is pretty simple. First you will use Veeam Backup & Replication

    to recover the full VM from the latest recovery point. When that recovery is

    nished and the machine is back up and running, you are facing the issue thatthe data is 24 hours old in the worst case scenario. Because of the RPO, you

     jump to the SCDPM server and recover the latest SQL data to the recovered VM.

    Because the recovered VM has the same settings, name and UUID as the originalVM, DPM will instantly recover the database(s) and les to this server.

     Figure 15: Recovering the latest SQL data

    Great advantages with this solution

    Besides the ability to create great disaster recovery plans or attack any major

    failure in the datacenter, you can do a lot more with those two solutions. There

    are many additional recovery scenarios, including Veeam’s replication, U-AIR®and more.

    One of the advantages is Veeam Explorer™ for Microsoft Exchange. This feature

    gives you instant visibility into your Exchange backups. You can browse, searchand selectively export items (such as emails, contacts, notes and more) directly

    from Veeam backups of your Exchange VMs.

  • 8/16/2019 Veeam Bar Dpm


    Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager and Veeam Backup & Replication – Better Together

     Figure 16: Veeam Explorer for Exchange

    All the different workloads that are protected with SCDPM can be recoveredin multiple ways as with the SQL options. This provides you with easy testing

    options and additional recovery options.

    For example, with SCDPM you can work with a secondary server that will give

    you additional DR scenarios and more exibility when Murphy’s law hits you.

    Better togetherWhile no two virtual environments are created equal, as an IT professional, youcan take a modern approach and deliver robust protection options for your

    virtual infrastructure and critical applications. Veeam Backup & Replication with
