Does XSIBackup Pro work with ESXI 7?

I have an existing license and am happy with the performance... will XSIBackup Pro continue to work with ESXI version 7?

I'm afraid it won't. It's not something we decided, but VMWare. ESXi 7 blocks all files for reading, thus we needed to develop an alternative solution that reads data from the SCSI disk.

If you read the above post, please just pay attention to continuum, the other specialist didn't grasp what we were talking about.

All editions will be ported to use DC technology soon.

I have a few dev boxes running ESXI 7 not running backups now... my production is running vSphere 7 (but ESXI boxes are 6.5 because upgrading will break the backup process). Is there an ETA on functional Pro release or an upgrade path from PRO to DC?

What does it mean to read data from the SCSI disks? Is it slower than read data from the files on earlier version of ESXi?

It means that as files are no longer available to be read, the data has to be read from the block device. It's actually a bit faster than reading the files. (c)XSIBackup-DC is considerably faster than Pro Classic in almost any situation.
