Day 3- VeeamOn 2015

Day 3 - we started with a general session which talked about how Veeam work closely with ecosystem to ensure Always On! and Availability.

  • Microsoft
  • VMware
  • HP
  • Cisco
  • NetApp

Veeam with HP

Veeam with Microsoft

New Update - Microsoft has 24 regions datacenter for Microsoft Azure.
Azure Software load balancer will be available on premise. Coming soon!


Session 1:- Scale Out Backup Repository (Luca, Mikhail) - SOBR

Problem:- Repository have a fixed size. A ton of wasted space

Add multiple repository to leverage multiple thread and create one job per repository

Scale out repository - group multiple simple repository into single entity

No nesting of scale out backup repository . Only 1Scale Out Backup Repository

Data locality
- Put all dependent backup files are placed on the same extend.

- All independent incremental backup files are placed on a different extent from the corresponding full backup file.

Previous version:-


Full backup (.vbk) on one repository
Incremental backup on one repository

SOBR Architecture:-
When a job is started, select the best extent from each group by
a) Skip all unavailable extent
b) Skill all extent with no slot left
c) Select the extend with the most estimated free space available

Data locality - per VM

How to migrate from existing repository?
- Import existing repository to SOBR
Backup set will remain in place - no moving. Correct placing happen on the first run of the job after configure SOBR
Existing backup job can be remapped.

Unsupported - replica metadata, configuration backup and VM copy -> cannot use SOBR

Maintenance ( Yes - it is available for SOBR)

Evacuation when no longer require.

Manual file movement
- you can manually move files across extents
- After relocation, just run RESCAN

Final warning:-
Be careful with deduplication devices (they do synthetic operation internally)

If got dedup storage - don't turn on performance policy.

SOBR - will not support Cloud Connect Backup in V9

Session 3: Top Investment in the Next Release of Hyper-V (Ben)

VM Storage Resilient
when storage has problem, VM will paused. Nothing write in disk. It will resume when storage is up and running without administrator intervention.

VM Compute Resiliency
When network outage occur, wait for a short period of time before failover. default is 4 min (can tune). If 2 min, we will wait.

Quarantine of flapping nodes
When a compute got intermitent issue, the problem come & go. Node leave the cluster and back later.
1. Keep track how many time it left and join. Default -3 times an hour.
2.If left more than 3 min, it will prevent node from joining to cluster and no vm placement. Default action is manual intervention to remove node from quarantine.

New backup infra
- no vss in host (still available on guest)

Shared vhdx
  • VHDX resize without downtime
  • guest cluster with shared vhdx can be protected by Hyper-V Replica
  • agentless backup of shared VHDX (guest cluster)

Online VM Configuration Changes
  • network adapter can be added/remove while Gen 2 VM running
  • resize static memory when VM is running.

Cluster OS Rolling Upgrades
  • rolling update with Win 2012 R2 and Win 2016 nodes within the same cluster
  • zero downtime cloud upgrades for Hyper-V and Scale Out File Server
* Maintain functional level and perform testing before change functional level

Operational Improvement
- Production Checkpoint. (By default). We are supported in production environment starting from Win 2016. It is safety net. Instead of capturing memory we do VSS snapshot to ensure consistency

Powershell Direct
- no dependency on network. Can access and perform action to guest VM from the host.

ReFS Accelerated VHDX operation.
Key word is "quick". Not instant! :)
