Hi Steve,

FSx is currently not supported within Veeam Backup for AWS. A workaround would be to mount the data and back it up using NAS backup included in Veeam Backup & Replication.

Are you using FSx on Windows or Lustre?

We are using FsX on Windows, we had considered the approach you suggested but its a very inefficient way to backup and erodes a lot of the benefits of FsX

Understood. We have it on our longer roadmap but for now, I can’t provide an ETA when it will be delivered.

We are facing the same challenge. We need to be able to efficiently backup FsX in AWS. My vote to move it higher on the priority list! :)
