Not long ago we setup a single node test Kubernetes cluster on our laptop using Minikube.Now let’s install the next generation of backup technology! Kasten.Kasten means box or container in German just in case you were wondering about the funny name :)We have already installed Chocolatey on our Windows laptop so we can go ahead and use it to install Helm. Helm is like a Linux software package manager but for Kubernetes: choco install Kubernetes-helm We will now use Helm to install the Kasten Helm Chart. You can find out more about Helm here: https://helm.sh/First, we must create a kasten-io namespace:kubectl create ns kasten-ioA namespace is a segregated area where only the pods for this setup will run. Next we need to add the Kasten repository to Helm so that it knows where to get our Kasten images: helm repo add kasten https://charts.kasten.io/ We are all set and ready to go.The install command is pretty straight forward but if you will remember we setup local storage in Minikube usin
Update: Patch 20210525 brings CDP support for 7.0 U2The long-awaited patch for Veeam Backup&Replication v11, which brings support for vSphere 7.0 U2, has been released.https://www.veeam.com/kb4126It's important to note that CDP won't work with 7.0 U2 as there's a driver signing issue. So if you're working with Veeam CDP then you still should wait before updating.Added VMware vSphere 7.0 U2 support including new vSphere API version awareness and virtual hardware version 19 compatibility. Note: CDP functionality is not yet supported with vSphere 7.0 U2 due to the I/O filter drivers signing infrastructure issue at VMware, support will be added in the next cumulative patch.More information on the vSphere 7.0U2 support can be found in the forums: https://forums.veeam.com/vmware-vsphere-f24/vsphere-7-0-u2-support-t72668.html

I’m using Veeam Backup for Office 365.Our data needs to be retained forever.My problem is that we have limited fast storage options (NAS that can read/write at high speeds). We have virtually unlimited slower storage options.I am currently using the fast storage for the repository. It is filling up fast, and in less than a year it will be full.I don’t need 10 years of emails and such to be quickly restored. I would like to move anything over 6 months old to a repository on a different, slower NAS.I’m trying to understand offloading to object storage repositories, but not sure this is the correct solution. Any direction would be greatly appreciated.
Good afternoon,I am with V10 version With Enterprise manager I try to hide jobs and vm depending on user.ExampleUser1 : could see Job1 and vm Vm1 and vm 2User2: could see Job2 and vm Vm3 We have two roles : Portal administrator and portal user. With the role portal user, I filtered the vm for each user. It works fine the User1 sees vm1 and vm2 and User2 sees VM3.But the two users see job1 and job2. My question is how do we filter the jobs by users as we can do with vm? Regards
Today, I’d like to talk about creating and scoping realistic and enforceable RPOs and RTOs for your Business Continuity (BC) and Disaster Recovery (DR) policies and Service Level Agreements (SLAs) within your organization. As every organization will have different requirements the focus of this blog post is on general considerations for shaping your policy.Additionally this blog post is focused around policy design as opposed to backup technologies and should be vendor agnostic for the most part, though where I am aware of features from my backup solution of choice (Veeam of course!!!) I have referenced improvements that solutions such as Veeam can bring to the process.The assumption is made that you’re already aware of the applications, operating systems and data within the organisation/environment you’re designing these policies for. Step One: Define Recovery Priority Before we start to consider recovery point objectives, we should consider the recovery time objectives of our workloa
[Blog Post] Kubernetes data protection with Kasten K10 by Veeam - Some blogs and recordings from the community
Recently I’ve been testing and used Kasten K10 by Veeam. The container data management tool from Kasten. I must say I’ve been very impressed with the software and also the releases keep coming with more functionality.Below is the content I’ve posted on this over the past few months, and I’ve even been delighted to ask to present at a number of user groups for this, culminating at a Session for VeeamON! Below are the posts I’ve wrote up.Installing Kasten on; Red Hat OpenShift running ontop of vSphere Tanzu Kubernetes Grid Configuring Kasten backup policies, protecting data and restoring data How to upgrade your Kasten environment Kubestr – Open-Source Kubernetes Storage benchmarking tool VMware User Group Recording - Protecting your Tanzu Kubernetes Workload with Kasten by Veeam I am more focused on the VMware Tanzu of the side of the house for what I’ve learned, but more than happy for feedback, and to answer any questions.

I had created a topic earlier about my book coming out - Mastering Veeam Backup & Replication v10 - Packt/Amazon Today I will be posting on my blog which will then go to LinkedIn and Twitter. I am working with Packt on a book giveaway for 5 people that comment on the LinkedIn post and will put up a review of the book as well. My blog is here - https://just-virtualization.tech So be on the lookout if you want your chance to win a free paperback copy of the book. We are also giving away some of the e-books as well I believe. Best of luck to all.
We have need to provide a Full backup report to our finance department for compliance. We are Backing up Physical, VMs and NAS storage. I have not yet found a report that works for us to get this info. I am curious, what do you use for a compliance report or full backup report for your environment.
I installed Veeam agent for Microsoft Windows on Hp Pavillion g6 Laptop of Core i5, 1 terabyte, 12 gig ram which runs on windows 10 enterprise, version 10.0.19043 with system type of x64-based pc, It was successful upon installation and a full successful backup.When i tried to reinstall the entire system using Veeam recovery media which I created, prior to when I started the installation, I encountered an error which says“OS disk in backup uses MBR disk. This may cause boot issues on UEFI systems”,which I resolved using https://www.veeam.com/kb3156 which actually solved the problem of “OS disk in backup uses MBR disk. This may cause boot issues on UEFI systems” after restarting my pc, everything happens to be fine until I turned my PC off,Upon turning my PC on again, I saw an error saying“Choose an operating system”, Meaning that I now have two (WINDOWS 10 ENTERPRISE on volume 4)What could have caused it?How do I resolve this issue?Thanks.
