Veeam: A Veeam Gem – Self-service DataLabs on-demand sandbox using Veeam Enterprise Manager

Greetings friends, sometimes we overlook some features that the products include, such as Veeam Enterprise Manager, and all the features that this allows us. Today I come to talk to you about a wonderful hidden and little-known feature, DataLabs on demand using Veeam Enterprise Manager.

Diagram with the use case

The first thing I want to show you is the technical diagram of where this solution can be a good practice, let's imagine:
  • There are several technical groups in an Infrastructure
  • The developers group does not have access to the VMware, Veeam and/or production network infrastructure, only a VPN that gives them access only to the DataLabs Proxy Appliance
  • This group of developers must be able to create DataLabs with a group of applications when they need them on demand from Enterprise Manager
In this way, the group of Developers located in a remote office can access the Enterprise Manager portal via the Internet for example, or via a DMZ, launch their On-demand Sandbox requests as long as they need, and then access those DataLabs using a VPN to the DataLab Virtual Proxy, which will give connectivity to the VMs that are in that on-demand sandbox.
