Does anyone have thoughts on how backup and recovery will work with the Acropolis hypervisor?
Our company is definitely interested in moving in this direction, but the simplicity of Veeam B&R has been great, and I do not want to move away from that unless there is a solution that provides all of veeams features.

Thanks for the question, I will investigate and get back to you
We will be having our "Nutanix DR" capabililties in our 4.5 release upcoming. That would be Nutanix to Nutanix replication.
Our product team is working with other "ecosystem" vendors as well so we can have 3rd party support for Acropolis hypervisor. Veeam has definitly been discussed as a great partner we would love to have as a partner with Acropolis.
Anything new already about backing up using the Acropolis hypervisor?
A few customers wants to move to Acropolis, but without any backup solution, it will be tough.
Looks like we will have Commvault support for AHV shortly, followed by other partners in 2016.
Thanks for your research.
I assume, you don't know what the other partners are, and whch quarter we are talking about...
To be more specific, I just want to know if Veeam is going to support AHV. Commvault is not really a tool for some customers.
We are actively looking at broadening our parter ecosystem around Backup, but no firm dates at the moment. We will keep this thread apprised when things firm up.
Until then, we recommend either using our CommVault integration (expected end of this year) or using Nutanix native snapshots for local operational recovery and native replication to a 2nd Nutanix cluster for remote copies. If you don't have a 2nd site, we also support snapshot replication into the public cloud (AWS).
Thanks for the reply.
I will keep an eye on this thread.
Just to confirm something, Veeam will not support AHV anytime soon.
Speaking to the Anton Gostev at Veeam he assured me of two things:
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...
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
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.
Any update to this?
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!
