Hello All,Thanks for inviting me. Glad to join.I have been working on Veeam products since 2012 and an active VMCE. I love the product and have been associated with projects where I migrated from three different backup products to Veeam.I have 18+ years of experience and enjoy working on multiple technologies/products that include Information Security, Information Protection, Cloud technologies, Backups, Disaster Recovery, Virtualization, HCI, Endpoint security, etc, etc.I will try to be an active member of the group.Thanks again and let's mingle.

Though Flash has ended its support, the ghost of flash will linger for long. Just like many obsolete technologies. There will be hurdles and many major security risks along the way. Adobe have removed all download links for Flash from its website, meaning anyone trying to install flash to a new machine that didn’t already receive an offline installer via Adobe’s mass deployment enablement programs will be forced to fetch from a third party site, running the risk of malware. Adobe’s recent clients have a kill switch of 12th January 2021 whereby they’ll stop working unless you amend the configuration for specific sites to trust, but Adobe don’t provide information of this on the general EOL website so this might not be recognised as an option by some. @vNote42’s link he provided in this thread has some excellent information on configuring this, whilst the link is focused around VMWare, the advice could be applied to most. People may cling to “old” clients without the kill swit
I had tried to set up XFS as a Veeam repository and failed. No real help from the support either and I had to settle with NFS based repository. But this was with v10. Thanks for the information @gulzarshaikhveeam. What did not work? It used to fail to get added as a repository. The support tried various steps but it did not work ATT. Case # 04450930
hello, I'm fresh from VMCE202 certification, maybe it would be nice to organize a study group even for the VMCA architect certification. :) Even I am interested in VMCA but you need to go through official Veeam training for 3 days to get the certification.
Hi there @mhmdadl. Good question. One perspective I’d say is that that the newest Veeam products, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure and Veeam Backup for AWS are an appliance in the marketplace. So, like all things, we do what makes senses. As for Veeam B&R as an appliance - there are solution stacks from Cisco and Nutanix. Beyond that, stay tuned. I am sure, there is something cooking in the R&D center. :DA backup appliance makes a lot of sense today with HCI infrastructure.
Thanks for sharing! It is a great resource! There are also problems with migrations (Windoes → Appliacne) of vCenter. Very often, wizard pre-selects a very large deployment despite it is not necessary. Sometimes it helps to clear some tables: https://vnote42.net/2019/11/16/bad-deployment-and-storage-size-estimation-in-vcenter-migration-wizard/ Excellent article!!
I think tape is great, I think the stigma it suffers is due to misuse like deduplication appliances. The issue isn’t in the technology but it’s deployment. I don’t believe tape should be used as an air gap solution (or not the primary air gap solution at least), for a single reason, it’s so slow! I was dispatched to a school trust due to a ransomware attack, I discovered due to the attack vector and the entire backup solution being domain joined the primary backup repo had been encrypted, the customer then proceeded to recover from tape but it took between 1-2 weeks for all of their data to be recovered and brought online. It was nearly a week before core services were even restored. With solutions such as Veeam Cloud Connect it makes sense to use VCC for air gap and keep tape for long term archiving purposes only. Most customers will keep their tape systems far longer than necessary and this causes them larger issues in the long run when using this as their DR response. With v1
