we are using Centos 6 and would like to be able to back it up or even interact with lefthand snapshots and the underlying ext4 file system.
Main part is, as you do it with Windows, Snapshots, CBT, WAN Accel to have small backup windows.

Patrick,

I assume this is about a virtual server? In that case you are on the wrong topic and you should be in the Backup & Replication part. If your server (or even workstation for that matter) is running on VMware or Hyper-V, with a storage beneath such as lefthand, then you can use all the functionality from B&R.

VEB is specifically designed for physical endpoints running windows, and maybe even a few physical servers (but on Windows also)

[MERGED] Feature Request: Backup Linux Clients/Servers

Veeam Logoby edv@rubner.com » Thu Oct 15, 2015 6:41 am

Hello,

We have physical Oracle Cluster and Linux servers in use.
Is there a plan that also Linux OS can be backed up with Veeam Backup Endpoint?

Thanks for the info.

Best regards

Hi Michael,

Never say never with Veeam :-). We are listening (or better said in this case, reading the forums :-)) very actively and we have seen this request a few times. Can you tell us what distro(s) you are running? I am not promising anything, but we like to see what the most popular used distro's are out there.

Thanks

Mike

Hi Mike,

Thank you for your quick response.

So we use the following distributions:
1. Oracle Linux OS on the Oracle Clusters
2. Debian

Best regards and thanks again

Hi Michael,

Thanks,

Mind if I ask you some more questions? Out of curiosity... Wondering if the needs for Linux are "comparable" with the needs for Microsoft OS endpoints...

* The Debian servers, what workloads are they running
* What underlying filesystem?).
* If we would offer backup, would you like to see File-level backup, Volume level or Entire Server protection?
* What kind of restore options would you like to see?
* Any other scenario's you would like to see?

Thanks

Mike

For those of you who are asking for Mac support... Macintosh Time Machine is a solution that has been advised many times by the IT community. Is there something you are missing in that solution and functionality from Veeam Endpoint Backup you want to use?

For the Linux requests - BOOM: http://www.veeam.com/blog/announcing-linux-server-backup.html :D

Hi Mike,

Please excuse that I answer so late. I did not see your post.

* The Debian servers, what workloads are they running
- The server utilization or the workloads is not high. The servers for example are Monitoringservers….
- On the Oracleserver, the workloads are high.

* What underlying filesystem?
- Ext 2-4, xFS

* If we would offer backup, would you like to see File-level backup, Volume level or Entire Server protection?
* What kind of restore options would you like to see?
- All options if possible :-). We just want to have an image with which I can recover an entire server. It is sufficient only the system partition.

Thanks

Hi,

VEB supports only Windows operating systems, so you question is treated as a feature request.
