Storage Integration Settings

On the Storage Integration tab, you can define whether you want to use the Backup from Storage Snapshots technology to create a VM backup. Backup from Storage Snapshots lets you leverage storage snapshots for VM data processing. The technology dramatically improves RPOs and reduces the impact of backup activities on the production environment.

To specify storage integration settings for the backup job:

1.At the Storage step of the wizard, click Advanced.
2.Click the Storage integration tab.
3.By default, the Use storage snapshots option is enabled. If you do not want to use Backup from Storage Snapshots, clear this check box. To learn more, see Performing Backup from Storage Snapshots.
4.If Veeam Backup & Replication fails to create a storage snapshot, VMs whose disks are located to the storage system will not be processed by the job. To fail over to the regular VM processing mode and back up or replicate such VMs in the regular processing mode, select the Failover to standard backup check box.
