Is it right that I can with Veeam 10 now NetApp CIFS vFiler? We use NetApp Cifs as "Fileserver" and are looking for this solution urgently. Is it already known if there will be restrictions? Volume size or other?

According to what was presented at VeeamON last week, Version 10 is going to support "NAS" backup, which would cover any CIFS/NFS share. So your NetApp should be able covered.

There were no specific limitations mentioned, but it was a very early build they were showcasing so I am sure those details will come later along with which Veeam license levels this will be available in.

That's right, v10 still has a looong way to go before it is available - but with our scale-out architecture, we're aiming to support PBs of storage in billions of files.

I know it's early days but do you anticipate any features such as:
1. some form of incremental forever functionality?
2. dedupe of files for full multiple full backups? (most CIFS data tends to be "dead" - unchanged from one year to the next- so if backups can ultimately run "fulls" without duplicating the files and/or blocks that can save a lot of disk space for long backup chains).
