How to avoid an Immutability MigraineWith direct to object storage backups coming in Veeam Backup & Replication (VBR) v12, we expect to see many more folks using object storage for their backup repositories. This means there will be folks using object storage for the 1st time. If they are like me they will probably use the graphical user interface (GUI) native to the object storage platform to manage their object storage.The native GUI will definately make the management easier, but it can also cause some headaches that you don’t expect. The reason I am writing this is to help you avoid one such migraine when you are using your object storage’s native GUI to configure your object storage bucket to create an immutable object storage repository in VBR.The ScenarioThe 1st thing you need to do to create your immutable object storage repository is to create the bucket which will store your VBR backup data.

If you are like me and can’t turn down something that is free, you should try out the Quantum DXi V5000 Community Edition download. What you get is virtual backup appliance that has all of the features and capabilities that Quantum’s physical DXi dedupe appliance has. What is wicked cool, a New England way of saying “awesome”, is you can store up to 100TB of data on the DXi V5000 using only 5 TB of disk capacity. This is assuming you see the full 20:1 deduplication of your data, so based on your data you might see less than the full 100TB. Like I said, I can’t pass up a good thing that is also free. So, I am going to download the DXi V5000 and install it in my home lab. I will also write a future blog on how to use the DXi V5000 with Veeam. Hope you take a look at the DXi V5000 and find it useful.
