[FIX] Object reference not set to an instance of an object…

Hi! As you know, after updating VMware vCenter to 6.7 Update 1, processing of all VMs fails with “Object reference not set to an instance of an object“. The issue is triggered by an update to the vSphere API version in vCenter 6.7 U1. It appeared to be a small API change which had an unexpectedly big impact on Veeam B&R. Here’s the post to introduce the workaround, waiting Veeam B&R 9.5 Update 4…

Hardening VMware and Backup

Hi, availability is based on policy-based mechanisms where data is often manually relocated to optimize cost and performance or to recover from a security intrusion. Tomorrow’s availability must evolve to a more autonomous model where the system reacts and adjusts automatically to any significant changes in the behavior of data, apps, or users anywhere across the enterprise. This level of automation is a big leap from where we are today. How can we bridge that gap from where we are to where we need to go? Keep in mind that Data Protection is crucial for ensuring the security of your data… My opinion is based on this Life Cycle: Data Protection = Cybersecurity approach + Data Governance + Modern Backup & Disaster Recovery. When we talk about Cybersecurity on an IT infrastructure, engineers have to apply some security rules to each component (server, storage, network etc.). This process is called “hardening”. Hardening has a true impact on the architecture (communication etc.), especially with the Modern Backup & Disaster Recovery environment. The following article is a feedback about Backup Job with Veeam Backup & Replication and hardening VMware vSphere infrastructure (Virtualization)…
