About vSAN Encryption VM's Backup

Post by Asahi »

Hi Team,

I would like someone to give me some advice. :D

VMware offers vSAN Encryption.
https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-vSphe ... 343A1.html

If Veeam backs up VMs that reside in vSAN encrypted with this feature, will the deduplication ratio be reduced?

Kind Regards,

Hi Asahi,
Deduplication rate shall remain the same, as backup application receives decrypted VMDK data blocks and is unaware of underlying vSAN encryption magic.
/Thanks!
