Hyper-V: File System Consistent (Windows)
HPE SimpliVity 380 provides the option to enable Microsoft VSS integration when configuring a backup policy or when initiating manual backups using the CLI backup command. This ensures application-consistent backups are created for MS Exchange and MS SQL database environments.
In OmniStack 3.6.1 support was added for VSS on virtual machines running SQL Server 2012/2016 on the Windows Server 2012 R2 operating system.
HPE SimpliVity 380 also still provides the option to create crash-consistent backups by setting consistency to "none".
