We are proud to announce the release of our first joint Legends project: Veeam Backup & Replication Pocketbook v1.

It is a collection of best practices from the field.

The following topics are covered:

  • Backup Basics
  • Security
  • Hardened Repository and Immutability
  • Performance
  • SOBR Capacity Tier Offload

We are discussing each recommendation with benefits, disadvantages and links to more information. Currently the Pocketbook can be downloaded here as a pdf-file. 

We are looking forward to your feedback!

Really handy customer-facing reference, and good reminder/checklist for the Veeam engineer/admin!

We will see. Perhaps we can discuss and decide on one of our Legends meetings in January.

We have a site for our project already thanks to Michael.

Maybe in the new year? Time and unpredictability of it availability for everyone is always the big challenge. Maybe we can think up some out of the box solutions like we post a Chapter Title for example REPOSITORIES , and then people just add bits and pieces underneath, short to the point like “REFS repos should be 64k block”. So the assumption would be that the reader knows Veeam and these are “added value” pieces of advice from Veterans on the backup/restore front.

We had setup everything for part two, but then had to pause it because of time problems.

I hope we will be able to create a version 2 for V12… (with a kasten part 😀)

I think the project kind of went to sleep. We could revive it. I can do the Kasten part  😂😁

This is just great @vNote42 and all other authors!!! I just love it. I would be very honoured being also an author in version 2, I love determining and implementing best practices :blush:

We just need to become Legends first then v2.  :smiley:

The anticipation is killing me for the announcement. :joy:

Calm down! I have the feeling, you will contribute to the next version :smile:

@vNote42 and other authors : I have read the whole pocketbook and this is really great!

Looking forward being also an author of this pocketbook of version 2 :blush: , as my signature already mentions : I like determining and implementing best practices.

I have just one remark…

Following is mentioned : 

Recommendation: You may want to kick off a tiering job immediately after connecting and configuring your capacity tier. You can force a manual capacity tier offload by right clicking on the SOBR and choosing "run tiering job now" option, or by using a PowerShell command "Start-VBRCapacityTierSync -Repository SOBRNAME". 

 

→ I think that pressing the CTRL-button in combination with right clicking is here forgotten :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

 

Next to that : some idea : perhaps we can also create a pocketbook for Veeam Backup for Office 365 (I know that @Mildur has a lot of knowledge about this product, I also have implemented this product already several times...) and a pocketbook for Veeam ONE.

Let’s say : the 3 biggest products of this awesome vendor!

Great comments @Nico Losschaert, I have one thing to say, do it! This is the Veeam COMMUNITY, you don’t need a green light from Veeam to make it happen, we discussed whether to include Veeam ONE or VBO etc but wanted a fixed scope to help ensure the project was successful.

 

All you need to do now is set up and own that project and whoever is interested in helping will no doubt make themselves known 🙂

Thx for your feedback @MicoolPaul ! Perhaps a topic for one of the coming Legend meetings :wink: , I ‘ll do my best to join the next meeting.

Good catch on the manual tier job as you need to use Ctrl and right-click. 😉

I could try to write some stuff about vbo365, if we do such a book. :)
