That is great.
And then some follow=up questions if I may...:
- I don't see any 'DR' options, right? As in: bare metal disaster
recovery restores, using a recovery boot iso, and restore a system from
scratch to bootable state. It's not a tool for that, right?
- I guess with VMs etc, the backup will use the available VM options
(ceph, zfs, lvm) to snapshot a VM, in order to get consistent backups,
like the current pve backup does.
But how does that work with non-VM client? (some non-VM client systems
run LVM, so lvm could be used to create a snapshot and backup that, for
example. Does it do that? Will my non-VM mysql backups be consistent?)
- Any timeframe for adding LTO tape support..?
We're really excited, and time-permitted I will try to play around with
this monday/tuesday. :-)
