Veeam v7.0 – Tape parallelization

Veeam v7.0 – Tape parallelization

Today I’ve realized that a single backup to tape job for lager environments won’t cut it. I configured a single tape job containing all regular backup jobs and this is how it turned out: Maybe because Veeam customers (probably due to the lack of tape support in older versions) tend to deploy the solution without […]

Veeam – Error when launching the console – SQL server is not available

Veeam – Error when launching the console – SQL server is not available

This is a really short post about a problem which is actually not a problem. Today I’ve worked at a customer site where the Veeam Backup & Replication (v7.0) database was located on a remote SQL server.

Veeam finally realized this feature with their current release and actually […]

Veeam v7.0 – My favorites – Transparent vCenter Backup

This post is dedicated to another minor enhancement which makes your life much easier. As you might know, pre Veeam v7.0 if you wanted to backup your virtual vCenter server with full guest processing (I/O quiescing), you had to use some kind of a workaround to make it work. You had to add an ESXi […]

Veeam v7.0 – My favorites – Parallel Processing

Veeam v7.0 – My favorites – Parallel Processing

As one of the new let’s call it minor enhancements, Veeam introduced the possibility to process VMs and/or VMDKs parallel within a single job. I have to admit, this is one of my favorites simply because it further improves backup scheduling. If you upgraded from a previous Veeam release like 6.5 you will need to […]
