I put together a powershell script which uses the SimpliVity REST API to automate copying backups across OmniStack Clusters.

SimpliVity Backups are Policy-based and VM-Centric. SimpliVity Backup Policies automate the protection of virtual machines in order to meet Recovery Point Objectives (RPO). Full virtual machines or individual files/folders with virtual machines can be quickly restored to the point in time when the backup was taken. This post provides a solution for using the REST API to schedule SimpliVity backups outside of the standard options available when creating backup policy rules.
Policy based SimpliVity backups have a retention period defined in the backup policy. When the retention period expires the backup is removed from the system. When a Manual SimpliVity Backup is taken, no retention period is set and the backup will never expire. This post provides some details on how to locate Manual SimpliVity Backups using the vSphere Web Client or the SimpliVity REST API.
The release of SimpliVity’s OmniStack 3.5 includes a number of great new features and functions which further expand the capabilities of the SimpliVity Data Virtualization Platform (DVP). One which I am very excited about is the addition of a REST API.
