Hi All,
Just looking to confirm the CDP will not be working with Hyperv right?

Hi Jayson,

Correct, as CDP utilizes vSphere I/O filtering capabilities that are not present in Hyper-V.

Microsoft really dropped the ball on Hyper-V some years ago, mentally labeling its feature set "good enough" and going all-in with the cloud. But I think last year it finally struck them that the future is not Azure (as they like to think), but rather hybrid cloud. So we now see their Hyper-V investments trend reversing with them releasing Azure HCI, meaning there's still hope!

Overall though, Hyper-V market share has been shrinking incredibly fast. Even from Veeam perspective, the percentage of Hyper-V deployments went from solid twenties to single digits over the past 3 years or so, with most customers switching to VMware. And unless this trend reverses, soon it will make no business sense for Veeam to continue investing into Hyper-V support...
