V9 EMC Storage Snapshots - ScaleIO

Veeam Logoby MiniWalks » Mon Jun 08, 2015 7:22 am

Hi Veeam Team

Love hearing that EMC Storage snapshots will come to v9,
I see that initial support is for VNX range, is there going to be support for ScaleIO by EMC? It supports storage snapshots also.

Is there anything extra needed if we are running Veeam in a 100% virtual setup?

Hi Matt,
the support in V9 for EMC will be for VNX and VNXe storage arrays, no other model has been announced or planned as of now.

In general, for storage snapshots you need your Veeam proxies to be able to connect to the storage array in the same way your ESXi servers do, so if the supported storage is configured in iSCSI (and some supported NFS...) a virtual proxy can be used, even if it's not ideal because of the multiple times data needs to cross the ESXi networking.

ScaleIO is not a physical storage model

Dell-EMC ScaleIO is a software-defined storage product from EMC Corporation that creates a server-based storage area network (SAN) from local application server storage, converting direct-attached storage into shared block storage.[2] [3] It uses existing host-based internal storage to create a scalable, high-performance, low-cost server SAN. EMC promotes its ScaleIO server storage-area network software as a way to converge computing resources and commodity storage into a “single-layer architecture.
(source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EMC_ScaleIO )

In my opinion, it would be great if Veeam would start supporting this and other types of virtual storage solutions. Is there any news on that topic?
(I would also appreciate an update, should Veeam decide not to support virtual storages)

There's a dedicated thread with similar feature requests and news on current/future storage integrations.
