SureBackup for Hyper-V?

Veeam Logoby stickymicky » Sat Jun 16, 2012 7:00 pm

Hi all...

Im trying to compare the features that VMware gives us over a hyper-v implementation...

Two feature that i love the look of are U-AIR and SureBackup!... But these are currently not available with Veeam on a Hyper-V platform...

From what I understand this is due to the complexity that the vSwitch in VMware gives and the fact that the VM's can be mounted over a NFS datastore share???

Can anyone tell me if these features can be obtained with any other feature or are these just a Veeam only with VMware???

I want to use VMware however, I need to get all the comparisons weighed up!

Pls HELP!!!

The only reason is that we just could not add every single feature we have been developing for VMware during past 5 years to another hypervisor in the very first release. However, our goal is to have the same feature set across hypervisors.

There is certainly no additional complexity - in fact, in case you missed - we have just added vPower (ability to run VM from backup file) for Hyper-V in Backup & Replication version 6.1 released 2 weeks ago, and this is obviously the cornerstone functionality of SureBackup and U-AIR.

We are still missing the virtual lab component, so the only vPower feature available for Hyper-V at this time is Instant VM Recovery. This, however, also means that you can already perform SureBackup and U-AIR process with additional manual steps (by performing Instant VM Recovery to the dedicated network).

Good luck with your comparison, I hope you are looking at Windows Server 2012 and its new Hyper-V for this purpose, because the current Hyper-V version is pretty lacking to say the least...
