Surebackup server - sizing best practices

Post by StephanG »


i have to replace our HP Gen7 Surebackup Server because of Windows 2019 Hyper-V and the ability to start machines with a higher VM configuration.
The last server was not bought for this purpose so it was not really configured for it.

Now that i have the chance to change this i am searching for the best practices.
We want to: Check our SharePoint Backup Daily (7 VMs + 5+ TB Storage + high IO), Use it for building test deployments (that may run for more than a week)

Because of the needs of SharePoint itself i will use 128GB RAM and something like a Intel Xeon Silver 4208. But how about networking? At the moment our backups are on a server with DAS. So i think i mainly have to focus on the network connection between these two. Are there any pitfalls or how did you configure this server?

Best regards

Do you have 10gb architecture available on your network? Get a 10gb network card.
