SAN Support

Veeam and Hewlett-Packard have worked together to integrate SAN snapshot support directly into Veeam Backup & Replication. If you have a supported HP SAN available in your infrastructure, you can use their native snapshot functionality to perform backups. This places a lot less load on your infrastructure, and the time a VM snapshot has to exist is significantly lowered, ultimately speeding up the backup process.

At the moment, the following are supported:

  • HP StoreServ (3PAR)

  • HP StoreVirtual (LeftHand/P4000 series)

  • HP StoreVirtual VSA (Virtual Storage Appliance)


    Veeam Backup & Replication v8 will introduce functionality for NetApp systems.

To be able to use SAN support features, the storage array needs to be added to the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure. Once that is done, backup jobs can be configured to utilize the native snapshot functionality. This enables frequent snapshots of IO-intensive applications, without significant impact on the infrastructure....
