I'm just wondering why this feature isn't implemented yet. I'm using Veeam with HP 3Par Snapshots to do the backup nice fast and easy for business ciritical apps like SQL server for SAP with VSS integration.
So far so good, but when it comes to a restore I have mainly these possibilities:
Restore whole VM with SQL server from Repository, app consitent - takes ages for TBs
Restore SQL Server from Repository, app consistent - takes ages for TBs
Restore from HP 3Par Snapshot(I hold 3 days worth of them scheuduled directly at 3par), NOT app consitent - but faster restore and better instant recovery!
so why isn't there a possibility to KEEP the app consitent HP3par snapshot after the san backup is finished for let's say 3 days for emergency restores?
