Re: File level backup and recovery with Acropolis hypervisor

Hi @badonders,

Just to confirm something, Veeam will not support AHV anytime soon.

Speaking to the Anton Gostev at Veeam he assured me of two things:

 

  1. Veeam V10 - Q4 2016 will not have integration with Nutanix to perform backup from snapshots. Veeam has this today with HP and NetApp, EMC VNX arrives with V9 next month.
  2. Veeam are not looking at building integration with other Hypervisors at this time.

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

 

Darryl

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

Hi @badonders

 

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 Smiley Happy

 

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!

 

Cheers,

-Damian

Hi @Damian_CV,

 

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.

Hey Tony,

 

Any update to this?

Re: File level backup and recovery with Acropolis hypervisor

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!
