We're moving into the Hyper-converged space, just signed on two, two node Simplivity clusters.
Right now we use traditional architecture, servers connected to SAN over Fiber Channel. Veeam is all virtual, hot add VIA appliance mode. Works great.
Simplivity is a whole new animal to us being NFS only. It looks like I'll want to setup my Simplivity nodes management network on the 10GB NIC's and use NBD mode in Veeam to backup the VM's on NFS. Does that sound correct?
Anyone else running Simplivity and Veeam, I'd like to know your setup and how it's working out. I thought about using direct NFS but the Simplivity rep recommended against that as they wrote their own NFS stack, I guess it's not standard.
Thanks in advance!
