From my initial test I ran into some issues with the current beta, however I haven't done extended testing as I used a standard openvz install. We would love to hear feedback from you if it works or not ;-)

Do you have some technical insights into how Veeam Agent for Linux hooks into dev/FS?
Then I will ask Virtuozzo Support if it is possible to use it in conjunction with their ploop EXT 4 thing ... ;-)
Thx

ps) I just asked within Virtuozzo Boards about VZ+Veeam Agent ... http://forum.odin.com/threads/veeam-age ... ty.337948/ ... don't know - but maybe you could contribute some technical insights there?
Hope we end up with a working Veeam+Virtuozzo configuration ... :)

I don't think it's something that can be briefly described :) Besides, VAL is currently in a Beta phase so the snapshot driver is likely to be modified in future releases because beta testers report performance issues with certain configurations in other threads on this forum.

As it's been already said - VAL is not intended to backup containers, however we are well aware that our users are interested in such technology and we expect that later we will work out the way to meet the demand.

Thanks!

alright - according to Pavel's (Odin Team) non-official statement Virtuozzo 7 (and maybe 6) CTs most likely could be backed up if KVM/libvirt support is added to VAL ... so I hope you will add this in future Release ... would add big value to VAL!!! :)
