Storware vProtect - backup and recovery solution - data flow

A new backup source type has been added: storage provider. Now it’s possible to protect Ceph RBD volumes, plain file systems, and Nutanix Files (AFS) as a technical preview. Administrators can execute full and incremental backups, recover individual files using mounted backups or share them over iSCSI.

This release introduces important enhancement for multi-AZ OpenStack environments with separate Ceph clusters in each AZ. Now it’s possible to assign individual storage providers to each AZ (“hypervisor cluster”). For OpenStack and OpenShift environments, vProtect also adds Projects to its inventory during synchronization.

When using Dell EMC PowerProtect DD (Data Domain) as a backup provider, administrators get the option to enable the retention lock feature to protect backups. This release adds a backup size report which may be essential for chargeback reporting. Starting from the 4.1 release Java 11 will be used.
