Veeam Compression

Veeam Logoby Ultra_Cool » Mon Jun 03, 2013 1:17 pm

Hello,

We have Veeam backup server in our test domain. One thing we notice is that Veeam doesn't compress files on Sharepoint server. Everyday we get from 5-9 GB of data. SQL server is not on Sharepoint server and we are not using sharepoint on this domain. What can cause that? How is it with restoring Sharepoint files (item-level recovery) and can we restore single exchange mailbox? When we backing up exchange shall we exclude database files from image backup and then create separate jobs for it or? And last on does replication job runs from backup or from VM direct?

Do you mean that for this particular VM you get large incremental backup files? What other applications are installed or activity performed in it that could cause guest data change? What is the data read/transfer statistics for it?

Yes. What version of Exchange Server are you using?

Typically there's no need to exclude disks with database files from backup. You can search for multiple existing threads regarding Exchange Server backup on this forum for how others backup Exchange in their environments.

This question has been already answered previously. Replication job creates its own VM snapshot.

In future, please kindly create separate topics for totally different questions as it is very hard to follow such discussions. Thanks.

Hello,

Sorry Foggy, I will do it next time. There is nothing else on that server except sharepoint 2013. And it is installed on server 2012. Data read is from 19-25 GB and transferred is from 5-9 GB. total VM size is 70 GB. It should not read so much data because we are not using it at all.
We are using 2010 exchange but will move to 2013 soon.

I recommend to review this topic for possible reasons of the large increments.

Did you get a chance to look at Veeam Explorer for Exchange included with Veeam B&R starting from v6.5? Currently it supports Exchange 2010 and allows restoring single user mailboxes. Veeam B&R v7 will support Exchange 2013 also.
