Nutanix - CBT

Veeam Logoby WimVD » Mon Apr 03, 2017 11:43 am

Hi,

We currently have a customer running a Nutanix cluster with hyper-v 2012 R2 as the hypervisor.
Since the storage is a third-party SMB3 implementation we understand we cannot leverage CBT.
As a result we have very long backup times of 16 hours+.

Nutanix has recently released AOS 5.0 which has a hypervisor-agnostic implementation of changed block tracking.
Does Veeam plan to support this and if so is there a timeline?

Thanks,
WimVD

Hi,

We support native Hyper-V 2016 changed block tracking (aka RCT) that is vendor-agnostic, and currently have no plans to support vendor-specific changed block tracking implementations (or make major investments into 2012 R2 support in general). Hyper-V 2016 is the future!

Thanks!

From the last news I got, they are actively working to support Hyper-V 2016, so it may be worth to check with them when their platform will support it, and then upgrade to it and use RCT.

Gostev, are you saying Hyper-V 2016 will be technically superior to vmware 6.5?

I don't think Anton was saying that Hyper-V is superior over VMware :-). What I think he said is that Hyper-V 2016 is the future for those on the MSFT platform and not 2012 R2 anymore. Especially considering the new, cool stuff in there such as RCT (and when your VM's run on ReFS, the checkpoint merge is also lightning fast).
