When Hyper V is coming to Veeam, would Veeam be allowed to backup free Esxi hosts?
I have some concerns about this.
I love Vmware with Veeam, but the requirement for lisenced hosts to use Veeam Backup is a major drawback for SMB customers.
The package gets quite expensive for a single server.
As Microsoft Hyper V host is included in Server 2008 R2 lisence and possible no extra host lisence required for Veeam Backup, then Microsoft has scored one here.
You only need a Microsoft server and a Veeam lisence to be ready to go. With Vmware you need Vpshere Essentials lisence, Microsoft server lisence and then Veeam Backup lisence.
What do you all think about this?

vStorage APIs are disabled on the free version of ESXi

Not to mention the idiotic vTax. Maybe D-Link should include with their 48-port switches a 12-port "connection entitlement", and by the way another 12 port entitlement will cost the same as the first.btn003 wrote:As Microsoft Hyper V host is included in Server 2008 R2 lisence and possible no extra host lisence required for Veeam Backup, then Microsoft has scored one here
But anyway, I digress.

Yes, that's true. We cannot support free ESXi hosts, because these hosts have vStorage API for Data Protection (and other management APIs) locked down to read-only mode specifically to prevent ISVs from being able to backup or manage such hosts. This is VMware's decision and there is nothing we can do about it.requenym wrote:vStorage APIs are disabled on the free version of ESXi
