General product family overview:
Nutanix Objects provides a scalable, reliable, cost effective, and performant way to backup, restore, or access large volumes of data. With security at the center point of its design, Objects ensures mitigation against ransomware threats with end-to-end encryption (HTTPS, Data at Rest encryption, Native Key Management), Write Once Read Many (WORM) capabilities, and a scalable notification engine for insightful analytics. All this is delivered via the famed 1-click simplicity of Nutanix Prism interface.

Veeam Testing Configuration

Veeam Build Number: 10.0.0.4461

Vendor recommended configuration

Vendor Settings:

  • Additional Storage Settings - Data reduction technologies such as Compression and Erasure Coding can be enabled.
  • Vendor recommended per node configuration
    • CPU – 10 Core dual socket system or above.
    • Memory – 128 GB per node or above
    • SSDs – Minimum two SSDs per node are required
    • HDDs – Minimum 4 HDDs per node are required
    • Minimum 3-Nodes per cluster are required
    • 2 x 10GbE ports per node are required
  • Array deduplication used in testing – no
  • Array compression used in testing – yes
  • Versioning on Nutanix Objects - enabled
  • Object Lock used - yes
  • WORM settings:
    o   Zero days - None - Supported
    o   Greater than zero days - Compliance mode - Not supported
  • Aggregate Veeam repository tasks for Nutanix Objects targets should not exceed 16 total task slots per available Nutanix Objects load balancer instance (current limit of 1000 connections per LB). If additional parallel processing is required, it is recommended to scale out load balancer instances.
  • When self-signed certificates are utilized in certain restricted network configurations (dark sites, etc.), the TLS connection establishment experiences connection delays during the CRL (Certificate Revocation List) checks built into the S3 gateway operating system. 

Disabling CRL checking is not a recommended security best practice, however in restricted networking scenarios the setting below will disable TLS revocation checks for all interactions with object storage endpoints performed by Windows gateway machine(s) where the registry value is created –

Path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Veeam\Veeam Backup and Replication

Name: S3TLSRevocationCheck

Type: DWORD

Value: 0

Note: from Veeam Backup & Replication version 12, the registry key has been renamed from S3TLSRevocationCheck to ObjectStorageTLSRevocationCheck
