EMC VNX Snapshots Physical and Virtual Server
Posted on 2014-10-10
I currently have an application that runs on Solaris 10 SPARC. This application does a disk backup every night. The backup is stored on a VNX LUN that's mounted to the physical Solaris server. The only physical server I have is the Solaris, everything else is virtual and I use Veeam for my backups.
I am trying to find a way to use Veeam to backup my Solaris backup LUN. I was wondering if it is possible to do a snapshot of the LUN and attach the snapshot to a Linux VM that could be then backed up and replicated offsite using Veeam. I know the VNX has the capability of using Snapshot Mount Points but I am not sure exactly how it works or if it can accomplish what I'm suggesting.
Other ideas are welcome.
