Next stop, we are going to look into integrate Nimble Storage with Veeam Backup & Replication v9.5.
With integration we able to backup from storage snapshot & create on demand sandbox using storage snapshot.
Before we proceed, please take note this blog post is early and some functionality may changed or modified on the GA release.
Let have a look on our test scenario:
- Veeam Backup and Replication ver9.5 Beta 1
- Nimble Storage
Get Nimble storage ready before start to add into Veeam.
New storage - Nimble! join on one of the supported storage for storage snapshot
Enter Nimble Management IP and credential
Once successful added, you can manually create storage snapshot from Veeam Console
Create backup job on virtual machine located on Nimble Storage. From the history, you will notice backup is created from storage snapshot and transfer to veeam repository.
Backup completed and you able to use Veeam explorer to perform granular item level recovery.
Further testing, we created on demand sandbox ( an isolated virtual lab) using storage snapshot.
An isolated virtual lab is created based from storage snapshot.
Everything was running well and we had a great time playing with the integration between Veeam and Nimble Storage.
That's concluded our test on integration.
