Veeam Availability for Nutanix AHV CE ...

Post by Didi7 » Feb 12, 2019 8:35 am

Hi guys,

any news regarding a Veeam Availability for Nutanix AHV Community Edition, like we have with Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 U4, that allows backups of 10 instances within Nutanix AHV, instead of a trial that expires?

With V1 of the proxy, the proxy needs a valid license deployed in order to turn on.

In the future we will release a version of VAN that does not require a license, and will require VBR U4 or later that does the license metering.

According to this site ...

https://go.veeam.com/vm-backup-free

... the backup and restore for 10 instances from Nutanix AHV is free now.

Has the Proxy Appliance been updated already, so that no license is further necessary or how does that work now?

It means that backup server running Community Edition can accept AHV backups and create backup copy jobs, using such backups as source. Thanks!

And furthermore it means, the AHV proxy appliance still needs a license and a free mode or a CE mode is not available atm, right?

Thanks,

AHV proxy appliance still needs to have a paid license installed, correct. Currently, VAN does not have Community Edition. Thanks!

In the meantime you could always use CE and deploy agents to protect AHV, assuming you have no more than 10 VMs.

Yes, I could, but that's not worth the hassle, agents are a no-go for VMs in those times. I will have to wait for the CE edition of Nutanitix Availability for AHV.

Hi guys,

does Veeam Nutanix Availability for AHV Proxy Appliance v1.0.632 still need a paid license installed or do we have a Community Edition version now?

There is no change in the licensing of V1 U2 (632) vs. earlier versions.

There is not. We do want to enable community edition in a future feature release of VAN. This latest release was a patch kit to address some support issues found by customers.
