Replication of VMs with De-duplication

KB Number:
00000210

Solution:

 

Purpose


An administrator may want to protect machines with de-duplication active, without creating a conflict between de-duplication, snapshot, or shadow copy applications and Zerto Virtual Replication.

Affected Versions


All Versions

Complexity


Low

Solution


Replication of VMs with active de-duplication is supported with Zerto Virtual Replication.   As de-duplication efforts, such as Symantec De-Duplication, take place at the guest OS level, Zerto Virtual Replication is not affected.

Note that ZVR will not be able to generate application-consistent checkpoints, for example with the ZVR VSS Agent,  while a backup/snapshot task is running within the guest OS.
