Future plans for new features and options

Post by simeonh » May 16, 2011 9:10 pm

Hi there,

Just wondering if Veeam have any future plans to do backups of esxi servers and physical servers, so it could be a one stop shop for backup, rather than haven't to use other backup solutions for doing these takes.

Hi, we definitely do have plans to backup physical servers down the road too, in addition to virtual. You can definitely expect this sooner rather than later. Thanks.

It would be a nice feature to be able to restore VM's from a Copy job.

I never said "very soon".

For Hyper-V backup, in the very first release. For VMware backup, most likely not sooner than VMware makes VMFS an open file system, so we can actually read data from it directly (like in case with NTFS), without being forced to go through vStorage API that in turn requires regular VMware snapshots to be created and used.

This I do not understand. All you need to do to complete the "restore" after VM Copy job is to double-click the VMX file in vSphere Client (which registers the VM).
