That said, it is unlikely this will be available in all editions... the functionality is just too advanced, and so the associated support costs will be quite high.

How would Veeam 10 with CDP compare with Zerto? Would they offer similar features?

It's too early to share any specifics regarding this feature. But just out of curiosity - what features do you like most and what features must be implemented? Thanks.

Hi

This replication is application aware? SQL, Oracle supported?

It will support application aware image processing. Take a look at this blog post for more details.

[MERGED] Veeam CDP - support physical RDM's?

Post by bpayne » Aug 09, 2017 6:37 pm

Sorry no sub-forum for the new CDP product that I'm aware of yet. Few questions if I could try and get some insight.

1. Will CDP support VM's that have physical RDM's (eg - most healthcare EMR's require RDMs).
2. I know I'm really reaching with this one, any licensing details yet (per vm? Ent+?).

Thank you

We cannot provide any details at this moment. However, I'm wondering what are the reasons to stay on pRDM (not even vRDM) these days, could provide more details? Thanks.

I dont disagree with you at all. But, Healthcare EMR applications require physical RDM's (for ex - Meditech, EPIC, etc). And we have customers using both those EMR's. The vendor will not support the application unless you follow their guidelines (which also creates an issue for Veeam Backup - we have to use Networker). And this goes without saying, if you dont have a supported EMR application, you dont have a hospital! According to Zerto and EMC Recoverpoint, those products do support VM's with physical RDM's. So this is an area I reallllly hope Veeam CDP can perform. Thanks for asking. I've been pushing this issue with my Veeam Sales Rep to get Veeam a bit more on board for Healthcare apps (b/c they require some very special backup and replication configurations).

More than Veeam CDP supporting RDM, I'd wonder if VMware VAIO libraries do, and I highly doubt it. Exactly like snapshots and other techs, VAIO premise is that the IO goes through the hypervisor stack in order to be filtered and processed, with RDM (exactly like in-gues iscsi as another example) data totally bypass this stack and go straight to the volume.
I only found for now this blog (https://dpzoneblog.wordpress.com/2016/0 ... t-title-2/) talking about recoverpoint and seems indeed that VAIO does not support RDM.

PS: Zerto does not use VAIO libraries, so it may be that they support RDM. It's funny that such applications are so interested in certifying data protection solutions (and that's good) and then the accept a solution that not even the underlying hypervisor supports (https://kb.vmware.com/kb/2069900).

Thanks for your response. That's a HUGE bummer. I'm also trying to get some confirmation from a VMware resource.

Some of the packaging decisions will be made closer to release. So not sure of the answer right now.

For in-guest CDP, you might want to take a look at SIOS Datakeeper.
We have some application vendors which insist on using MSCS and RDMs and they certify SIOS.

[MERGED] Veeam 10 CDP Query

Post by Matt.Sharpe » Sep 04, 2017 9:51 am

Hi Guys,

Will the CDP feature in Veeam 10 require any special compatibility with Vendors that are supported to use San Snapshot support. OR will this feature work with vendors such as compellent? Can you also confirm if it requires vSphere 6.5 or will it work with 6.0?

Any information that can be provided on CDP for v10 would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Matt

No special storage device will be needed. The feature won't be tied to particular storage vendor(s).
Can you also confirm if it requires vSphere 6.5 or will it work with 6.0?
Currently we cannot share specifics regarding supported vSphere versions.
