Veeam Backup & Replication on HPE SimpliVity 380

Introduction

HPE SimpliVity 380 offers powerful native capabilities for data protection that can be leveraged to ensure the highest availability of virtualized workloads. The built-in data protection services of HPE SimpliVity leverage unique data deduplication and compression features that complete operations quickly and efficiently. HPE SimpliVity hyperconverged infrastructure provides 10-minute RPO and 60 seconds or less on average for local backup or restore of a 1 TB VM - guaranteed and without any performance overhead. All HPE SimpliVity operations are carried out at a VM level, directly from the hypervisor management console, which simplifies management and infrastructure complexity.
In addition to what HPE SimpliVity users already have, some also desire additional capabilities such as off-site archive to cloud or tape, or an additional layer of granularity for restores, such as granular restore for some of the most popular applications. It is also possible that HPE SimpliVity users have heterogeneous infrastructure that consist of hypervisors running on third-party servers, or servers that can't be virtualized, where there is still a need for a data availability strategy. In this white paper, we go deeper into a few of these different use cases where one might want to add Veeam Backup & Replication to HPE SimpliVity 380.
