I have a Lenovo thinkserver RD630 with 16 bays.
I was wondering if I could use it as a ESXi host as well as a backup storage to run my VEEAM back up and recovery on it?
This RD630 is a clean unit.
It has not been configured yet.
I was hoping I can use it as an ESXi host and as well use it to store backups from our network.

Our backup solution that we will be implementing is VEEAM backup and recovery and as well a DR replication offsite.

Let me know how and if it is possible to do.
Also, how would I go about to do this?

Thank you.
