VBO365 on a VM

Post by slackhouse » Mar 25, 2020 5:59 pm

As I understand it, Veeam does not support having a backup repository that has dedup because of the live JET database. i.e., Cohesity, Nimble, Exagrid, etc.

In the case of VBO365 running in a virtual environment, does it matter what the underlying storage is. For example, the VM vmdks are on a Pure Storage Flash Array datastore. Can you then create an additional disk on that VM and use that disk as the backup repository for VBO365?

That is perfectly possible. Fast disks are advised but as you are talking about a pure storage array it shouldn’t be that much of an issue.

So, there isn't a problem with this even though Pure eventually does deduplication to all data that lives on it?

The JetDB shouldn’t be affected as it isn’t happening directly to it. You could perform some tests to see if it indirectly affects it but I haven’t heard reports on that.
