I am trying to see if my thought is even possible. In my mind, I can imagine our Cisco UCS blades running VMware having no problem communicating to a Fiber Channel-connected tape library over the same fabric interconnect that connects the blades to our SAN. The goal provided would be to eliminate the last physical server; i.e., that Veeam can run within a VM on the blades. Is there any reason why this would not work? Our vendor was skeptical that this would in fact work.
Thanks for your thoughts!
