Storage Integration

Post by sc211166 »

We're running an Hyper-v Cluster on HPE Nimble storage and I was looking for the storage integration, but could not find the "Add storage" mentioned in the guides.
Is it only supposed to work with vmware ?
thanks

Hello,

Yes, backup from storage snapshots is supported in vSphere environments only.

By the way, if you want to shift data processing from Hyper-V host to a dedicated proxy you may try off-host backup with Nimble VSS Hardware provider.

Thanks!

And this is basically a Hyper-V native implementation of backup from storage snapshots. ;)

Do you have any whitepapers on this, and/or what sort of i/o benefits it has? It's a fairly steep upgrade to go to Ent+ or VAS, and one advantage Hyper-V has held was the ability to have the proxy run directly on host vs running VM Proxies as Guests ON those Hosts.

This link can provide deeper information. In this setup, you have a proxy running on a standalone Hyper-V host releasing your production host from the processing activity.
