@Harry Bos: Excellent question, but please let me first clarify something. Currently, VMCE-ADO is a course and an exam but not a certification. Once you passed the VMCE exam and the VMCE-ADO exam, you achieve the VMCA (Veeam Certified Architect) milestone certification. We do have a new design course in the works and with that an updated exam, as for specific timelines I can most likely estimate both the course and the exam for release this year. Completely agree
Hey, so your retention for the VM will depend on which type of backup chain you use, reverse or forward incremental. Any solution can give you the “at least” 2 restore points, there are a few considerations around storage performance but I won’t dilute my reply here going on a tangent. For your reading here’s a link to backup methods. It’s for vSphere but it’ll work the same for Hyper-V as it’s nothing to do with the hypervisor. I would recommend using a modern file system such as ReFS or XFS to make use of Veeam’s Fast Clone technology if you decide to use synthetic fulls (create a new chain weekly as a full independent backup but using your existing backups as a source to fetch existing data from) or active fulls (create a new chain based on reading all data from your production again). ReFS is for Windows and XFS is Linux, further reading on Fast Clone here and the requirements for each system. As for your file server that’ll depend on whether the file server is an actual serve
I believe I know which product you are talking about and to be honest, when I started using Veeam, I had always asked for the feature that you requested. Even the concept of the number of recovery points against the number of days of backups was also new at that time(introduced recently in Veeam as well). So having worked on Backup tech for the last 15 years and over 5 different backup products, in my opinion, managing the backup disk space can be improved and there is certainly room for improvement.Thanks for bringing it up.
Thank you, @vNote42 , this are good news. I have to migrate from an old LTO Generation to a new one later this year. Now I can copy the content of the old tapes to a few new ones and don't have to wait for all old tapes to expire to get rid of them... V11 rocks 😎 can't agree more with you. It does certainly takes care of a lot of hassles.
