Veeam: What’s New in Veeam Backup & Replication v11 – Linux Proxies – DirectSAN with NetApp

Greetings friends, back in March 2020 I was telling you that Veeam had taken a very important step by 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-step to use an Ubuntu 20.04 LTS in DirectSAN mode, to some disk arrays I have. This way the backup is going to fly, as well as freeing up the workload to the hypervisor.
