Veeam: What’s new in Veeam Backup & Replication v11 – Linux Proxies – DirectNFS

Greetings friends, back in March 2020 I was telling you that Veeam had taken a very important step announcing Linux Proxies, a component that certainly makes all the sense in the world to select Linux for it, as it just moves information from one place to another.Now with Veeam Backup and Replication v11, Veeam takes a leap forward and includes many improvements for Linux-based Proxies, for example, we can now use other backup methods, such as DirectSAN, DirectNFS, and Fibre Channel. And save on Windows licenses, and increase security.In this fantastic post, we are going to see the step by steps to use an Ubuntu 20.04 LTS in DirectNFS mode, to some disk enclosures I have serving NFS (it's actually my QNAP, and my NetApp ONTAP, I told you how to enable VAAI here). This way the backup is going to fly, as well as freeing up the workload to the hypervisor.
