[Feature Request] Oracle VM Hypervisor Support

Post by rmmead » Oct 24, 2017 2:48 pm

I know this one is a long shot per the Veeam guys I chatted with at VMUG. We are one of the apparent few who use Oracle VM Hypervisor. It would be nice to be able to back it up the same way we can back up our VMWare hosts. I know that the OS Agents are available, but file-level isn't the same as block-level.

Our agents do block level backup, just inside the VM. In fact you have the choice, File or Volume Block level backup

But thank you for your post, it counts as a feature request. If enough people keep asking for Oracle VM support, we might consider it for future releases

See this topic for more votes for this (veeam-backup-replication-f2/oracle-vm-s ... 12084.html)
It's very frustrating that we have to pay £12,000 for Veeam Linux Agent license to back servers up on Oracle OVM, when we've already paid to license Veeam Backup & Replication for the CPUs on the host servers.

Count us in. Using Oracle VM due to database licensing.
