In the first chapter, we will introduce Veeam Availability Console (VAC), its capabilities and its use cases/scenario.
VAC uses a 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 this chapter we will explain the simple deployment of VAC into a single machine, useful for managing small environments.
In this chapter 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. 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 this chapter, we will explain how to build a fully redundant and scalable VAC system.
