Support for Nutanix AHV

Post by Matt@Work »

Hi

Are there any plans for Veeam to support backup of VM's on the Nutanix Acropolis AHV? We are currently evaluating the hypervisor as a replacement for VMware and so far if we go this route, Hyper-V is the only supported alternative for Veeam backup.

Thanks

Matt

Thanks for the reply. Is there a way to raise a feature request for this?

+1 for this feature request.
Will look to migrate our cloud environment once Veeam can support AHV backup / existing tool set.

+1 from me too.

We are now migrating our internal datacenters to AHV soon, and more and more of our customers are doing the same.

It would really help if you could quantify exact numbers of hosts/virtual workloads. one persons definition of "a lot" can very from another.

+1 for Nutanix Acropolis support, it's a very hot topic

The basic 3 node setup is a nice substitution for a classic 2 node + shared storage solution

But, as Chris said, this is just a 3 node /6 socket request. How many nodes would you deploy in one year?

Zero, because Veeam don't support them, and backups with Veeam are mandatory in a virtualized world :D

Seriously, in my company could be 2 - 3 customers a year with Nutanix, with a total of 6 - 9 hosts

Ciao

Like many others, my company has gone full-in on Nutanix. We have replaced all our legacy virtualization systems with Nutanix. At this time we are still using VMware. However, one customer is already going to AHV ( Nutanix version of KVM ). I expect others to follow. I strongly recommend Veeam give serious consideration to adding KVM support.

While Veeam is wonderful software, the truth is, it's easy to change backup software. We will do so when the lack of AHV support becomes an issue.

We will certainly react to the changing market conditions in case Nutanix starts grabbing significant market share. As our own history shows, it's hard to be late to market when the certain technology is really growing significantly (we were not the first or even the second vendor with VMware-specific backup tool).

Keeping our existing 205000 customer base is the biggest priority for us, while adding support for another hypervisor will definitely reduce the pool of R&D resources available to deliver based on their needs, so we're extremely careful when it comes to committing to supporting additional platforms.

I am seriously impressed with Nutanix and their hypervisor AVH.
The only drawback at the moment is I can't use veeam with AVH and I love Veeam. Nearly had a heart attack when it was suggested I could go back to Commvault.
From the rapid growth of Nutanix over the last 5 years there has to be a significant customer base already with Nutanix.
Admittedly a lot of them will be VMware sites but once Veeam can backup AVH why pay for licensing when there is a free, fully supported hypervisor included with full Nutanix support.

We are a new Veeam customer and so far I have been pleased. After purchasing our first Nutanix clusters, there is no going back. I plan on fully removing the exorbitant VMware licensing as soon as I can. 50-100k in licensing support per year is ridiculous. AHV or some form of commoditized hypervisor is the future. After going to the .NEXT convention there are now 2 vendors with support for AHV and more coming on board by Q4 according to Nutanix. I would love to see Veeam hop on board and support the future as well. With Rubrik coming on board to provide simplified backups for AHV, if Veeam can't or won't at least give it a shot....I know where my next backup software will come from. Pretty please....with sugar on top....I don't want to switch backup vendors again.

Yes, you can try to use Veeam Endpoint Backup for this task.

Is this new functionality? I'm just curious as this thread I believe was only started roughly a month ago.

Also any solution coming or currently available for backing up Linux AHV machines?

This thread was mostly discussing the hypervisor support by Veeam B&R so far, while Veeam Endpoint Backup is installed directly on the guest OS regardless of the platform it is running on (including physical). Linux servers backup will be also available soon.

Ok gotchya, thanks for the clarification. I'll have to go educate myself. I thought Commvault was the only player in the game right now.

Nutanix AHV isn't a particular device (we should be integrated with), but rather a hypervisor platform. Thus, I've moved your post to the corresponding discussion. Thanks.

Just picked up a Nutanix box, and would love to have Veeam support it. Current 8.x customer, and would happily upgrade to 9.x or 10.x whenever Nutanix support comes up.

I was really hoping the Big Announcement this morning would include support for backing up VMs from Nutanix's hypervisor (AHV). :-/

We are evaluating the move to Nutanix. Is Acropolis integration anywhere on the road map?

We do not typically share our roadmap, however, nothing has changed since this thread was started 3 months ago.
