Hi,

Currently we don't have an integration with arnhf architechture on the roadmap. May I ask you about respberrys' application in your case? What do you use them for?

Thanks

Hi,

primarily we use them for monitoring purposes (check_MK) and fallback remote access to the customer network.

You might want to try starting it on Rpi with some ARM to x86 emulator, however you should keep in mind that such configuration is not officially supported so we cannot guarantee that VAL will be fast and stable. If you choose to conduct such an experiment please share you results with us.

Thanks!

Hello,

I wanted to ask if there is new information about this topic.
ARM based systems are more powerful today (RasPi3, Odroid XU4 etc) and get more and more popular. So maybe it would make sense to develope an Veeam Agent for Linux for ARM based systems?

Hi,

1 year later is the Raspian in the roadmap?

I have a domotic box under Jeedom and i'd like to backup it with Veeam.

Thanks

Hi,

It's not on the roadmap yet, however your request has been noted.

Thank you!

Hi there,
I am also interested in this.
It would be a great to see support for ARM architecture devices like Raspberry Pi's and many other...
Are there any plans?

Monitoring and emergency fallback remote access.

Hi,

Support for Raspberries has not been scheduled for development yet.

Thanks

Hi again,

VMware has done some moves running ESXi full nodes on a Raspberry Pi...

What about you guys? ;)

Hi Eneko,

It's not clear whether you want to backup Pi with VAL, or you want to add it to VBR as an infrastructure server (repository, for example)?

Thanks!

Hello,

considering that ARM based SBCs (Single Board Computer) like Odroid-XU4, Rock64, RockPro64, Tinker Board S, Raspberry Pi 3 B+, Raspberry Pi Zero are getting more and more popular... it would be a great start to add support for the "Veeam Agent for Linux" to backup those systems...

Would it be possible at all?

You can find a nice review here:

May I ask what kind of backup are you planning to use? I mean, do you want a full image backup (why?), or just some critical files?

Thanks!

Hi,
here exists some interest as well.
We are using RPis for all kinds of stuff.
Home automation, network monitoring, vpn.

I think a full image backup would be interesting for most of the users out there.
I mean what makes veeam good is how easy to use it is for unexperienced users.
And those are the people that are getting more and more involved with ARM based computers.

For me as professional a Veeam ARM Agent would be interesting for infrastructure reasons beeing able to do full image backups of all our RPis.
For me as a tinkerer at home it would be the convenience to "just take a backup" before going on trying something.
