All,

I have a customer running jBASE on VMware served by NetApp storage… Currently they are taking application based backups… However, I REALLY want to switch them to backups using Veeam to orchestrate an application consistent snap based backup… Since it is my understanding the database is like a large text file; corruption is always a concern.

The Veeam backup takes a vSphere consistency snap and then sends an API to the storage array to take a snap… Then kicks off the array based replication of said Snap to a DR target… 

Is there a pre or post Quiesce type call I can add to make sure jBASE gets backed up correctly?

Thanks,

Ben Compton

Here is a Veeam specific article: https://docs.zumasys.com/jbase/faq/backups-using-veeam/

Please reach out to support if you need any additional help.

They are not using transaction boundaries? Physical snapshots won't help you with logical database consistency. On a side note, if using NetApp, why not just move everything to AWS - cheaper, faster, etc.

They use mainly Azure… This is a LARGE GLOBAL manufacturing company and each site has a dedicated jBASE FlexPod

 

Thanks,
