How to Plan Failover virtual machine to Disaster Recover Site at Veeam Backup and Replication v12

Planned failover is the smooth manual switching from a primary VM to its replica with minor downtime. Planned failover is proper when you know primary VMs are planning to go offline, and you need to switch the workload from the original VMs to their replicas as soon as possible. For example, you can use planned failover to perform data center migration, maintenance, or software upgrades on primary VMs. You can also perform planned failover if you see signs of an impending disaster.
