Using a VM Veeam server for Direct San Access FC

Post by dominic.paquin » Oct 03, 2011 2:16 pm

Hi, thanks for reading.

I work for a consulting company, mainly focused on the SMB market. In that capacity, we mainly deploy iSCSI based SANs. So when I want to use the "Direct SAN Access", I just have to add a PortGroup to the iSCSI network.

But, one of my customer is using a DS4700 from IBM. In this case, if the customer wants to use a VM for it's Veeam server, will he be able to use the "Direct SAN Access"?

Thanks!

Dominic, according to my quick search, this device provides FC only and thus direct SAN access cannot be used with virtual Veeam B&R server. But the customer still can use Virtual Appliance mode for fast source data retrieval. See our sticky F.A.Q. topic for details. Thanks.
