Backup Interoperability Matrix Major Update 2019-04

It’s been some time that I have updated the Backup Interoperability Matrix because of some personal and work related responsibilities. In the April 2019 update the following backup software was updated:

  • VMware vSphere Data Protection 6.1.11
  • Veritas BackupExec 20.3
  • Veritas NetBackup 8.1.2
  • IBM Spectrum Protect for Virtual Environments 8.1.7
  • Micro Focus Data Protector 2019.02 (10.30)
  • EMC Avamar 18.2
  • EMC Networker 18.2
  • CommVault Simpana 11.0 SP15
  • Hitachi Data Protection Suite 11.0 SP15
  • Veeam Backup and Replication 9.5 Update 4a
  • Quest vRanger 7.7.1
  • Nakivo Backup and Replication 8.1
  • Unitrends Enterprise Backup 10.3.4
  • Acronis Backup Advanced for VMware/Hyper-V 12.5 Update 4 Build 13160
  • Arcserve Backup 18.0
  • Arcserve UDP 7.0
  • Micro Focus VM Explorer 7.1.001
  • Altaro VMBackup 8.4
  • Vembu VMBackup 4.0.1

You can find the latest backup matrix update for VMware here and for Hyper-V here. In this update I removed the vSAN columns from the vSphere matrix because I try to create a vSAN only matrix. I also moved all deprecated software to an extra matrix which will come shortly. I extended the existing vSphere columns with minor updates columns (U1, U2) because some backup vendors also have support matrices for this minor updates.
