You might or might not know this, but Wasabi does have a minimum storage duration policy in place.What's that?Depending on your pricing model, each uploaded object will be billed for a minimum amount of time.Pay-as-you-go customers have 90 days, reserved capacity customers (pre-paid) will have 30 days.If you delete an object before this minimum duration is over, the remaining time will still be charged.You can find more information on this website:https://wasabi-support.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360058734492-How-does-Wasabi-s-minimum-storage-duration-policy-work-ExampleYou upload 1TB of objects to Wasabi and have the 90 days minimum storage duration policy in place. After a week you decide to delete the whole 1TB.This means you pay for:7 days timed active storage 83 days timed deleted storageCan I recover deleted objects?You might think, that as you pay for deleted objects, you may be able to recover those. Unfortunately this is not the case, so you can’t use this as a recycle bin.
With v12 it will be supported to use group Managed Service Account (gMSA) for user credentials.For my understanding of gMSA it will be necessary to have VBR server in a domain. Because it will still not be recommended to join this server the production domain, a special resource or management domain could be needed. For more details we will have to wait for general availability to get the user guide.If you have more ideas about gMSA implementation, let us know 😀
For this blog series, I will look at M365, which many people use daily, and why it is necessary to have backups using the Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365. Now my approach will be coming not from a typical user perspective but from an MSP (Managed Service Provider) perspective. I will start part one of this series by going through the shared responsibility model for Microsoft 365 and how Veeam plays a key role there. As we progress through the series, I will talk more about the installation of Veeam for Microsoft 365 and other best practices. Shared Responsibility ModelThe shared responsibility model regarding your data relates to what Microsoft is responsible for and what you as the end-user are responsible for in protecting your data. Many thought that Microsoft did backups for your data, and that assumption could not be farther from the truth. When your data resides in Microsoft 365 as the end-user, you are responsible for backing up your data.What is explicitly each party respo

I did a research for consistent PostgreSQL backups with Kasten K10 and found:https://docs.kasten.io/latest/kanister/postgresql/install_app_cons.htmlApplication Consistent PostgreSQL BackupYou described there to use a Kanister pre-hook (“pg_start_backup”) and post-hook (“pg_stop_backup”). Afaik, that alone will not create a consistent backup. You also need any generated archived WAL file between. Archiving must be enabled (archive_mode=on), archived WAL files must be backuped too, therefore. I did not find anything about how to backup archived WAL files. How will you handle them? Thanks, Markus
SureBackup is a really great feature to verify your backup data. Up to now the selection of VMs to verify within a single job was limited. For example it was not possible to mix physical with virtual machines. There seems to be something new in v12 beta! With beta it is possible to add agent backup machines to virtual machines into the same Application Group and as Linked Jobs too.

I wanted to ask here in the community if anyone has developed a Veeam Tape report mainly for size reporting that they can share? I am looking in to VONE but the reports there are not sufficient enough for our reporting.We have a service that clients send to VCC then it tapes out for long term offline storage. So each month we need to automate reporting on size for each tenant of consumed data on tape.I am also asking in the Vanguard slack too about this so some of you may see this there as well. Also doing my Googling too. 😋
After watching last week’s Community Recap, I realized that I missed a great blog posting from @regnor about setting up Wasabi Immutable Storage for VBR. After reading this information, I realized that I, as a smaller service provider and MSP, require a more complex configuration to host multiple tenants in Wasabi and was inspired to share my configuration for setting up Wasabi when you have multiple tenants under one account that you don’t have to have accessing each others buckets.The magic lies in some S3 IAM policy work in place to prevent buckets from being visible and accessible to the wrong tenants. When I was setting this up, there wasn’t much information for doing exactly and S3 policies were completely new to me. Using Wasabi’s and Veeam’s instructions in the links and the end of this post didn’t work for me out of the box, so after asking around in the Veeam Community, R&D Forums and Veeam Subreddit and some experimentation, I was lead to the answers I needed. I hope
Happy Friday everyone!Today I'd like to see what you're all talking & reading about.I'm talking blogs, podcasts, vodcasts etc.Have you got a blog that you're actively writing in? Share it below! Got a blog/podcast/vodcast that you read the moment anything new is released? Share it below and WHY you like it so much?With tools such as Feedly, Reeder and other RSS clients gathering so many sources of data, it's interesting to see what keeps you "in the know".For example my RSS feed is full of Legends, Vanguards, and even Veeam staff, so I can see what's going on in the other corners of Veeam. But in addition to that, there are some great sources of information that I love to read up on such as: Security:Bruce Schneier - https://www.schneier.com/ - A wholistic view of securityOrca Security - https://orca.security - This company has found some incredibly high profile AWS/Azure vulnerabilities with great post-mortums.Microsoft Security Response Center - https://msrc-blog.microsoft.com/ -
The Korner is a place where you can start your Kubernetes Journey.Veeam understood correctly that a huge group of IT specialists will need to get familiar with Kubernetes at an accelerate time frame because the demand for specialists will grow exponentially. However, this is much easier said than done given the fact that many people are working a full-time job and perhaps still believe that they have not yet achieved enough expertise in existing technologies that they are working with.The Kubernetes Korner will help everyone overcome these difficulties and learn together. What can you do at the Kubernetes Korner? Do the daily Kube Task, a brief Kubernetes task in an environment that we help you setup Ask any question you may have Create posts. Watch out for special events and meetings that are Cloud Native related Think of any ideas for the Kube Korner, this is your Korner too! We are all on this learning path together and our joint efforts will result in everyone’s common success!!
I am new to Veeam and would like to restore the backup to a new location. The wizard takes me through steps to restore. In the datastore menu does it automatically create the VM with the new name. This is production server just need to know more before proceeding. Is this the only wizard for restore or after completing this wizard there will be another wizard to be completed. Is the live server online when the server is restored?
Hello guys,To implement the 3-2-1-1-0 golden rule with Veeam Backup for Office 365 I have the following configuration:On an onpremise repository I backup my Organization on a specific partition with VBO for MS365I created a specific Veeam Agent job in my VBR to backup this specific partition on a SOBR with an immutable bucket.I thought that it would be possible to restore directly from this backup to Exchange Online , etc like mentionned here :https://forums.veeam.com/post414246.html#p414246But I dont have the same options... If I try to used the Application Items, i selection my restore point but nothing show up in the broswerAny idea?Regards
Inspired by @Geoff Burke‘s post about immutability for Kasten with Wasabi, I decided to post the same for Veeam Backup & Replication. If you want to check out Geoff’s post, then follow this link:What/who is Wasabi?Probably Wasabi doesn’t need to be introduced. But if you can only think about the paste you get with Sushi, then you should check out their cloud object storage. Besides AWS and Microsoft, Wasabi is one of the Vendors, who often gets recommended for usage with Veeam Backup. The reason for that is their really competitive pricing, combined with great functionality/quality and low complexity.How to create an immutable bucketAfter registering an account with Wasabi, the creation of an immutable bucket isn’t complicated at all.Just make sure that you select the right region for your location, and also enable bucket versioning and object locking.Afterwards you need to create an access key. For testing purposes you can use the root account key, but for production you should cr

This wasn’t on my 2022 bingo card… According to MinIO, Nutanix Objects has been using MinIO for years without disclosing this, and after years of discussions, they’ve been unable to find a good faith solution to this. Therefore MinIO have revoked Nutanix’s licenses to MinIO software. I don’t want to misinterpret this as MinIO’s blog post has strong legal vibes to it, but MinIO are advising customers of Nutanix Objects may have legal & security risks by continuing to use Nutanix Objects. You can find MinIO’s statement here: https://blog.min.io/nutanix-objects-violates-minios-open-source-license/As of the time of writing, I’ve been unable to find any announcements from Nutanix relating to their perspective on the matter, via their social media, blog or news resources. If you utilise Nutanix Objects, you certainly need to question how this impacts you, and sooner rather than later!
