VAW and StoreOnce - Feature Request

Veeam Logoby kevin@wei.com » Mon Mar 13, 2017 12:35 am

Would it be possible for the new Windows agent to support HP StoreOnce, either directly or through a VBR repository? Right now, I have to backup through a NAS share and lose the catalyst integration we have all grown to love.

Thanks

Hi guys,

The only way is to use HPE StoreOnce as a CIFS for VAW backup jobs. However, we plan to enhance this functionality in later versions.

Diogo,

Unfortunately, that’s not possible in current version.

Will VEEAM 10 support backing up from veeam agent for windows directly to storeonce catalyst instead of cifs, as it is currently?

Thomas, It's a bit early to say anything definite about v10 complete feature set.

+1 for this feature

We're in the process of migrating everything to Veeam (*fist pump*) and our physical servers are the last to go but we've had to utilise a CIFS share on our shiny new StoreOnce to get across.
Glad to hear it may be an option in the future.

Cheers,

Another +1 for this feature.

Bit of a buzz kill to find out that even as of 9.5 U2, VAW cannot write to a repo that's backed by a StoreOnce Catalyst store. What's the sticking point? Isn't the Catalyst client API baked into the target data mover? Why exactly does VAW care what the backing storage is behind the target data mover? Seems like the target data mover should be a complete abstraction layer between the source of the data and the target storage such that the former cares not what the latter is.

Thanks,
Jim

Jim,

VAW requires some logic to be implemented on it’s end to support direct backup to StoreOnce. We plan to support this scenario soon (most likely next major release). As a temorary solution we reocmmend to use StorwOnce as a CIFS repository for agent backup jobs.
