hi, This requirement also relates to some investigation we are doing in terms of containers and using NFS for persisting container data. In our case the NFS layer could be exposed directly from the SAN device, so in our case things like attachments etc would be stored (1000s of binary objects). It would be great to use Veeam for this rather than one of the old school agent based backup solutions from other vendors.
I guess a VM would need to be identified as requiring to be backup up through an inside VM agent style backup rather than via VADP layer (having said that containers present yet another level of complexity I think unless the NFS store was additionally mounted outside of the container for backup purposes).
To make this requirement more generic, the ability to backup an NFS mount could apply to windows based workloads as well - but requires the VM to be treated as a file based store rather than a VM object.
