Upgrading from BE 2010 R3 to BE 2012 V-Ray or Veeam

この問題は解決されました。 ソリューションを参照してください。

We are currently running Backup Exec 2010 R3 but have received a free Backup Exec 2012 licence. We are considering an upgrade from Backup Exec 2010 to either the V-Ray version of Backup Exec 2012 or moving away to Veeam. Exec 2010 R3 is working well but we need a more robust DR solution!

Our environment comprises:

  • One physical BE media server (one processor, four cores) with USB based backups. There is nothing else running on that server
  • Two Hyper-V host servers running five VMs each, including Exchange 2010, SharePoint 2010, SQL 2008 and Forefront TMG 2010
  • Mixture of Windows 2008 R2 Standard and Enterprise

Questions:

  • Will one V-Ray licence cover our setup?
  • Are the Hyper-V components on the host servers backed up by BE V-Ray i.e. VM configuration settings, snapshots etc?
  • We currently use GRT for our Exchange data. Will the remote agent that is included in the V-Ray package also allow us to continue to use GRT for our Exchange backups?
  • Is V-Ray fully Exchange, SharePoint and SQL application aware?
  • I am planning the following backup strategy:
    • Weekly full backups of all VMs (including all application data)
    • Daily incremental backups of all VMs (including all application data)
      • Would such a backup strategy negate the need for a traditional data backup as the VMs along with their data would get backed up daily and individual files/e-mails could be restored from any of the VM backups?
  • Is there any need for our existing BE 2012 licence if we purchased a BE V-Ray licence or is there an upgrade option?

Thanks!

  • Will one V-Ray licence cover our setup?

A: I believe so however, you may wish to check with a sales/licensing rep on that.

  • Are the Hyper-V components on the host servers backed up by BE V-Ray i.e. VM configuration settings, snapshots etc?

A: Yes, if you are backing up the host and system state.

  • We currently use GRT for our Exchange data. Will the remote agent that is included in the V-Ray package also allow us to continue to use GRT for our Exchange backups?

A: Yes, it will.

  • Is V-Ray fully Exchange, SharePoint and SQL application aware?

What do you mean by "Fully aware"?

  • I am planning the following backup strategy:
    • Weekly full backups of all VMs (including all application data)
    • Daily incremental backups of all VMs (including all application data)
  • Would such a backup strategy negate the need for a traditional data backup as the VMs along with their data would get backed up daily and individual files/e-mails could be restored from any of the VM backups?

If you perform host level backups through the VMware/Hyper-V agent, yes

  • Is there any need for our existing BE 2012 licence if we purchased a BE V-Ray licence or is there an upgrade option?

You'd need to contact our licensing department regarding this one. I'm sure there is a different license.

  • Will one V-Ray licence cover our setup?

The V-Ray licence is one per VM core, so if you have more than one core, you would need more licences.

  • Are the Hyper-V components on the host servers backed up by BE V-Ray i.e. VM configuration settings, snapshots etc?

Yes, if you backup the entire host.

  • We currently use GRT for our Exchange data. Will the remote agent that is included in the V-Ray package also allow us to continue to use GRT for our Exchange backups?

Yes. The V-Ray licence includes all the Agent for Applications and Databases licences that you need.

  • Is V-Ray fully Exchange, SharePoint and SQL application aware?

Yes.  You would need to install the BE remote agent in each of the VM.

  • I am planning the following backup strategy:
    • Weekly full backups of all VMs (including all application data)
    • Daily incremental backups of all VMs (including all application data)
      • Would such a backup strategy negate the need for a traditional data backup as the VMs along with their data would get backed up daily and individual files/e-mails could be restored from any of the VM backups?

If you backup the entire VM, then you can use GRT to restore individual items, like files and mailboxes.  However, take note that if your Sharepoint is spread over a couple of machines, you would still need to back it up using the traditional backup method.

  • Is there any need for our existing BE 2012 licence if we purchased a BE V-Ray licence or is there an upgrade option?

You would probably need to upgrade it to the V-Ray edition.  Contact the Symantec Licensing department to sort out the details.

Thank you both; I'll start the V-Ray trial and see how I get on with it.
