Veeam Explorer for Storage Snapshots for VSAN

Hey Guys,

I was wondering if there's any plan to support VSAN with the feature set of Veeam Explorer for storage snapshots?

Hi Amir,

As a former member of Veeam team, you should know the answer to this type of questions ;) We do not comment on our plans until we have something ready to show, but thanks for the FR.

Thanks!

That said, I don't believe VSAN provides storage snapshots today anyway? They do have some plans aka portable snapshots (as announced at VMworld 2016), but that's distant future only?

No they don't , and for BfSS is not even needed any storage integration as the technology is totally different and doesn't suffer from redolog commit limits. So the vCenter interface is ther only real snapshot broswer you need ;)

Thanks for the answer guys, the question was not aimed for BfSS but more for file/item Explorer (like Explorer from storage snapshots) .

Reason for asking is that as far as i understand CVLT have this option available and it came up in a discussion with a customer.

Hard to believe you can explore a storage snapshot that doesn't exist :)
