[AHV] Feature request Rollback drives ...

Post by Didi7 »

Hi everybody,

I eagerly await the feature 'Rollback drives' (as can be done on VMware VMs) instead of completely restoring the whole disk from an AHV vm for fast recovery in case of ransomware attacks.

Best regards,

thx for the feedback. We are considering this for future releases. In your example, if the ransomware does a full encryption, there is not likely to be a lot of rollback vs. full restore operation.

In one earlier case, the rollback feature (available with VMware virtual disk) saved us a lot of time, because the user had no admin access at that time, but clicked a compromised attachment and encrypted his home drive and all group drives, he had access to.

We have SAN access transfer rate over 10GBit/s in this environment :D

Rollback from actual state to last backup an evening before brought us file services back in approximately 5-10 minutes. Applause, applause Veeam!

Ok, this was 3-4 years ago and ransomware attacks have advanced in their techniques ;)
