I have got the following situation, i have purchased licenses to back-up my hyper-v clusters of which i have two.
i have got a HP Proliant server 16GB Ram and equipped with 10K SAS 900 GB Disks, Raid 50 which leaves me with approximately with 10TB hard-disk space.
Now because this is my first encounter with Veeam, i wonder what the best approach will be to install Veeam.
should i install it directly on this server and make back-ups to the local storage, or
would it be better to create a virtual 2012 R2 machine on this host on which i install Veeam and give this machine a D:\Partition with the rest of the space that is left of the 10TB
Or create a virtual 2012 server with the Veeam install and give it access to the 10TB hard-disk space on the host via a network Share
what is the best practice in this case and what is the smartest thing to do, i hope that the smartest and the best are the same solution!
thanks all for your time in trying to figure this out with / for me
