Upcoming project needs support for GPFS

Veeam Logoby wdlarg01 » Thu Aug 09, 2018 4:17 pm

As stated in the subject, we have a need to use VAL to backup servers that use GPFS. These are part of our high performance compute cluster. I can't even test right at the moment, as they need to upgrade to a supported OS level (Currently Centos 5).I did read several related posts, and it seems clustered file systems are a challenge at best.
So, is GPFS on the current roadmap to become supported?
Do I have any other options?
Current system is latest (I think) VBR 9.5.0.156 and would be the latest VAL as well, 2.0.whatever.

Hi,

Yes, we have plans to add support for file-level backup of file systems that are currently not supported by our snapshot driver. I don't have an ETA for that feature, but we are interested in delivering it as soon as possible.

Thanks
