Feature request: NetApp NDMP support

Veeam Logoby jveerd1 » Fri Nov 14, 2014 2:38 pm 2 people like this post

Since the Veeam NetApp partnership, Veeam B&R v8 integrates very well with NetApp as production storage using storage snapshots. Because we often use NetApp as a backup repository we would like to file a NDMP tape support feature request. A very common configuration is connecting a tape library via Fibre Channel or SCSI to the NetApp to perform NDMP tape backup.

Frankly speaking, we are discussing this feature - so any input ( like personal use cases or end user scenarios and such ) is highly appreciated. Thank you.

I could get use out of this as well. I have a small subset of the 1600+ VM's that I back up that need quarterly backups retained permanently. As we already use NDMP in our NetApp environment, I could leverage our existing hardware configuration to dump those quarterlies to tape.

We also require this feature. We want to backup NetApp-Filers with NDMP directly (FC) to tape-library.
With this feature, Veeam could be our only backupsystem. Otherwise, we need another backup-tool for that.

This feature would be great!
Thanks.

Nope, unfortunately, we do not disclose our roadmap. Thanks.

Is there any new info about backing up Netapp Cifs share with Veeam like NDMP or another way?
Most of our Netapp customer use NFS für VMware and CIFS for file services.
CIFS is a main feature for our Netapp customer to buy an Netapp storage.
Most of them use other backup software and not veeam.

Hello Peter,
No updates on this feature, so far. Is it heavily requested by your NetApp customers?

Hi,
to be able to get storage snapshots to tape

Out of curiously why the existing backup to disk to tape is not working for you? Thanks in advance.
