In Veeam backup management, it is supported to offload the GFS backup copy from performance tier repository to capacity tier repository. Normally the capaticyt tier will be configured on object storage (Azure Blob, AWS S3 and etc.) to reduce the storage cost.
However, when retrieve(download) the backup from capacity tier repository, there is only one option to download the backup for entire backup job which mighy includes multiple virtual machines. This short powershell script is crafted to download the monthly GFS bakcup for selected VM.
HPE StoreOnce is a deduplication storage system providing efficient data compression and deduplication capability and suitable for data backup and long-term retention. HPE StoreOnce can be also be integrated with major backup vendors as the backup target storage.
This post is a quick introduction and demonstration of the HPE StoreOnce Catalyst Store for quick reference.
HPE StoreOnce is a deduplication storage system providing efficient data compression and deduplication capability and suitable for data backup and long-term retention. HPE StoreOnce can be integrated with major backup vendors as the backup target storage.
In Azure, there is virtual edition of HPE StoreOnce in Azure Marketplace. Deploying and initializing the HPE StoreOnce VSA is a very pleasant process with a straightforward outcome.
Since the HPE StoreOnce supports the data replication between appliances, the Azure based StoreOne VSA could be a good candidate of remote DR data copy by replicating the data from on-premise StoreOnce system.
It is noted that the VSA deployed in Azure will come with a trail license: “One time instant-on license for up to 90 days with a maximum 500TB capacity. No support provided by HPE.”
This post is to outline the deploying steps for quick reference.
Veeam backup software family includes a solution to provide the backup capability for Azure virtual machines. As a kind of tradition of Veeam backup solutions, it provides a “Free Edition” to allow 10 VM backup for free. This post is to provide an overview about how to deploy the Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure.
The first impression of this solution is its simplicity. Not only from the backup methodology, but also the deployment and operation.
Commvault supports backing up Cassandra database. Cassandra is a distributed database that can handle large amounts of data on multiple nodes. For Cassandra version 3, Commvault support backup log files as well. This post is to outline the high level steps to configure the Cassandra backup in Commvault.
