We're testing Storage Spaces Direct (S2D) in Windows Server 2016.
We've built a 2 node, hyper converged cluster
Our setup is:
2) HP ProLiant DL380 Gen9 servers. Each server is connected directly via dual port Mellanox ConnectX-5 adapters using DAC cable, no switch. Although for the vm workloads, the DL380's have four 1gb nics that are connected to the production HP Procurve switch.
We also have a ProLiant DL380p Gen8 and an old ML350 G6 that are connected to a HP MSA 2052 via SAS cables.
Right now, Veeam is running as a virtual machine on the older DL380p. I swap out external hard drives connected to the USB ports on the DL380p every night.
Before I can go live with the S2D cluster, I need to have a solid backup plan in place.
What does Veeam recommend on how best to back up a 2 node, hyper converged S2D cluster?
Remember I also have a HP MSA 2052 with SAS controlers. The cluster is not connected to the MSA 2052.
However, the 2) DL380 Gen9's, the 1) DL380p Gen8 and the 1) ML350 G6 are all connected to both a 1gb Procurve switch and a 10gb Netgear switch.
Thanks for any insight you can offer.
