I`m out of my comfort zone with Linux and have a question to ask the forum.
I`m currently at a new business where there the main Application is Red Hat Linux 6 running a Progress Database v10.1
Whilst at the moment Vsphere Replication is making a copy of the VM to a DR site I wish to swap this over to Veeam ( of course !
I do not need to make a consistent copy ( although it would be nice )
I just need to make a copy of the VM so we could follow existing process of copying a copy of the DB to the Replicated VM.
My real question is around these points
1. Vsphere Replicator I assume is just making a copy calling the API - so in theory swapping to Veeam will be exactly the same - making a non consistent version.
2. Is there are value in adding the Linux backup agent to the RHEL v6 server ?
3. Anyone currently backing up Progress Databases with Veeam possibly using freeze and thaw scripts ? This is a 24/7 business so not entirely sure if this is the way forward but would be interested to hear anyone out there
