Just to confirm something, Veeam will not support AHV anytime soon.
Speaking to the Anton Gostev at Veeam he assured me of two things:
I encourage you to jump into the Veeam forums and express your interest in AHV and Veeam integration. People like Anton Gostev are actively monitoring these forums.
Thanks for this information..
I will add this request to the Veeam forums...
From now on, I will focus on Commvault and their possibilities right now...
Is DELL Appassure one of the partners? Seeing its a nutanix partner for its appliances...
I've already put in a request on the DELL side, but would be good to see requests from nutanix side as well
Commvault product manager here, working on the integration and partnership with Nutanix. Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can assist you in any way. We believe in giving our customers choice - Data protection shouldn't lock you in to choosing a Hypervisor or infrastructure that is not the best fit. To that point, we support 4 Hypervisors today and very soon AHV will be our 5th once generally available (March) - And don't think we are stopping there
We announced AHV support yesterday - you can read about it here and see a sneak peak of protecting and recovering AHV VMs here. We also have IntelliSnap (hardware snapshot) support avaliable today for VMware and Hyper-V with Nutanix.
We're just getting started with Nutanix, a great partner with amazing tech!
Thanks for the information... I think you already helped me with a webex for a customer...
I am waiting for the official support in the next Service Pack.
In SP5 (just released a couple weeks ago) we added windows File level recovery for AHV Virtual Machines. In SP4 we could only really do Unix VMs due to a tiny issue about AHV telling us what the guest OS was, but we have worked around that and now file/folder provide recovery for Windows.
We also extended IntelliSnap support to AHV! So now you can leverage the power of individual VM hardware snapshots, perform instant reverts (PIT recoveries) and also convert those snapshots to a disk, tape or cloud backup copy for long term retention.
Some other cool pieces on the way too but one step at a time!
