Linux Proxy acts in the same way as Windows Proxy now and all Transport Modes are supported.

Finally we can use as many Proxy Servers as we need regardless the Windows licenses!

Yes, with v11 there will be more and more Linux proxies! Just missing tape-support on Linux proxies.

Such a good news! it’s unfortunately for tape support but from my experiences tape support works better with windows host. conf_drv could be a nightmare on linux.

Just googled for “conf_drv” but could not find something. What is it about?

Don’t forget, “CBT restores” are not available for Linux-based proxies in v10 at least - I am not sure about the coming v11. This means fx incremental restore aka Quick rollback is not available and you would need to use fx the “default backup proxy” on the Veeam Backup Server if you don’t have any other Windows-based backup proxies.

Good to know we moove the majority of our proxy to linux, we had more power during the backup windows. Due to licensing and automation we are more into centos/rhel OS :)

it’s where library configurations were in our previous backup solution. It’s the “eternel” path for requeting Tape library with FC

Proxys!!! Proxys everywhere!!!! Linux proxys in v10 works like a charm. My tests in v11 is good, very good. For terraform and another type of automatization will be great, many proxys on full load, few proxyies when synthetic and cia.

I have wanted this for years. It seems so logical as the NEA was already being leveraged as internet facing component, how much effort to simply put a data mover on it and harden it up. Then again I was hoping the NEA was going to be replaced by VeeamPN but...  I imagine because that is networking after all and understandably Veeam don’t want and become a networking company on top of backups :)
