Feature Request: Backup Physical Machines.

Post by davidshq »

So...while I am waiting in eager anticipation for the announcement of SureBackup, I figured I might as well mention another wish...
While we have moved a large number of our servers to be virtualized, we still have a few physical servers. Right now I am using a combination of Symantec BE, Microsoft DPM, Veeam Backup, and Red-Gate SQL Backup to fully protect our network...it'd be nice to remove BE/DPM out of the equation. For this to happen I'd need:
1. The ability to backup physical machines (perhaps some integration with VMWare Converter?).
2. Integration with a tape library.
Just a thought. =)

Hello David,

Thank you for your feedback, actually, you're not the first one who requested such features, please have a look at the answers below:

1. Support for physical servers - http://www.veeam.com/forums/viewtopic.p ... cal#p12413
2. We are addressing tape integration issues with "tape-friendly synthetic" backup mode (this is how we call it internally), this option will be a part of our next release.

Thank you!
