Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 4
User Guide for VMware vSphere

Configuring Backup from Cisco HyperFlex Snapshots

You can instruct Veeam Backup & Replication to perform backup and replication from Cisco HyperFlex snapshots. During a backup and replication job, Veeam Backup & Replication will use native Cisco HyperFlex VM snapshots instead of VMware vSphere snapshots, which will speed up backup and replication operations and improve RPOs.

Before you configure backup and replication jobs, make sure that the production environment and backup infrastructure meet requirements for full integration with Cisco HyperFlex. For more information, see Integration Modes.

To back up and replicate from Cisco HyperFlex snapshots:

  1. Configure a backup or replication job. At the Storage step of the backup or replication job wizard, select a backup proxy that will be used for data transport. You can assign the backup proxy explicitly or choose the automatic mode of backup proxy selection.

Configuring Backup from Cisco HyperFlex Snapshots 

  1. At the Storage step of the wizard, click Advanced, then click the Integration tab. Make sure that the Enable backup from storage snapshots check box is selected. By default, this option is enabled for all newly created jobs.
  2. If Veeam Backup & Replication fails to process VMs in the full integration mode, VMs hosted on Cisco HyperFlex will not be backed up or replicated. To fail over to the regular data processing mode, select the Failover to standard backup check box.
