Episode 84 Hyper-V What to back up?

April 9, 2013

In this episode, Rick Vanover once again welcomes Simone Bennett (On Twitter at @Simone_AU). Rick and Simone (attempt) to tackle a tough topic: What to backup for a Hyper-V cluster? Not the VMs, but the infrastructure itself. What in Failover Cluster Manager needs protection, and what is the best way to do it?

This in fact was a tough question, and we had to pull in an expert. Microsoft expert Joachim Nässlander gave some insight to the situation on using node eviction as well as the how-to on Failover Cluster Backup. Joachim gave some good insight, featured in this Backup Academy blogpost.
