vsphere standard with veeam

Post by mthiha »


The customer is currenly using vsphere standard. Vsphere standard wont support "Storage APIs for Array Integration, Multipathing" feature.
If i use veeam enterprise for vsphere standard, will there be any limitations and performance degradation for veeam?

There wouldn’t be any issues regarding Veeam limitation or performance degradation, since Veeam is not dependent on VAAI (but will implicitly leverage its benefits, if present).

VAAI is an API provided by VMware for storage vendors to implement. This allows for offloading some of the storage tasks (like, thin provisioning or zeroing) from hypervisor to storage array. This, in turn, decreases the load on hypervisor.

Hope this helps.
