Best solution to backup Clustered HYPER-V environment with Cluster Shared Volumes
Posted on 2012-12-20
We are currently running the following environment:
HYPER-V Failover Cluster on 2 node Windows Server 2008R2
Cluster Shared Volumes – Hosting the VHD’s
Currently backing up the Cluster Shared Volume to intermediate store on a SAN and then to the a backup SAN.
Currently we are using Backup Assist to run our backups, but are having difficulty getting the results we want with various issues at times. Is there a backup solution that you would suggest that does the following:
1. Granular Restore of VHD file.
2. Incremental backups inside full backups so to maintain space on the backup location.
3. Disaster recovery options in case of catastrophic failure.
Please keep in mind, we are a small company and prefer to keep cost low, but willing to look at all solutions.
