IBM ESXi

Post by Bowlzee »

We currently have Veeam running on our ESXi hosts without a problem. However there is a need for us to move to IBM's ESXi to allow for IBM Director better administrative abilities on these hosts. Will Veeam work with the IBM specific ESXi? Has anyone been able to test this?

Not sure I fully understand what version of ESXi hosts you're referring to, but we are fully hardware agnostic and it doesn't matter what vendor you're using to run your ESXi host. Thanks!

IBM have released a version of VMWare with iSeries compatability built into it so IBM Director can perform updates etc to it.

Not sure it will affect any ESXi code but just wanted conifrmation

We do not test vendor-specific ESXi builds, however I do not see any possible issues since the hypervisor code is the same - what is different are drivers and additional management agents.
