Cisco HyperFlex integration with Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 Update 2
In early February 2017, Cisco announced their 2.0 release of HyperFlex. The noticeable innovations are the introduction of All Flash HX nodes with 3rd generation UCS Fabric networking, as well as even better support for data and I/O intensive applications. These innovations already enhance the existing flexible and modular platform, which combines compute performance nodes, hyper converged storage and networking.
But there is more in HX 2.0 than what is mentioned above.
Normally you would expect to see our new storage integrations happen at the major release cycle, but not this time! Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 Update 2 will introduce an integration with Cisco HyperFlex. A major highlight here is that this is Veeam’s first integration with any hyper converged system. It’s also worth noting that because it is the first integration for a hyper converged storage system, it’s different than the other Veeam integrations you may be familiar with. The main thing to note is that the HyperFlex integration does not include Veeam Explorer for Storage Snapshots, but it may be added at a later date.
Let’s review how this phenomenal technology works with the latest release of Cisco HyperFlex.
