Veeam Agent for Windows and SQL Clusters

I know that today we can backup a SQL Always On cluster by adding all of the VMs in the cluster to the same Veeam job and it processes as expected.

With the Veeam Agent, if I install it on 3 nodes of a separate physical Always On cluster, I can't run them as part of the same job as far as I know, so how is processing handled, as far as primary and secondary nodes go? Will Veeam figure that all out, or more to it?

Hello Joshua,

For the time being Veeam Agent for Windows supports only single node installation because Veeam Agent for Windows isn't a cluster aware backup product.

We have SQL Clusters also, I would like to know what the strategy is for backing up clustered drives? We do fail overs pretty often so it wouldn't make sense to designate one as primary (with all drives being backed up) and secondary (os drive only). That was a suggestion I read somewhere in these forums.

+1 request for adding SQL Clusters.

I saw in the VeeamOn presentation that Windows Failover Clustering support was coming, but does that include SQL?

Are there any further information about Windows Failover Cluster Support in v10?
At the moment we are looking for a new backup solution (because Backup Exec sucks). I would like to use Veeam but we need support for physical SQL Failover Cluster. We are using SQL 2014 on Server 2012 R2.

Virtual Failover Cluster are supported with Hyper-V2016 and Guest OS 2016, am I right?
