What are the considerations for replication frequency

Veeam Logoby davids355 » Wed Mar 29, 2017 6:34 pm

I have a server running windows hyperv. Its a new setup but the details are going to be as follows - disks are SSD and configured in raid 5. It has around 10 virtual machines which are running a combination of exchange, terminal services and sql. The host server has 2 x 1gbps ports which I am planning to team to give me 2gbps bandwidth.

I would like to configure veeam replication so that I can have a copy of all VMs on another server (On the same local network) so that I have some redundancy in case of hardware failure.

I just wonder what would be a sensible frequency with which to replicate the VMs from one server to another, taking my available bandwidth into consideration.

Hi David,

The recommended replication frequency depends on the bottleneck stats you have and your desired RPO. Have you tried replication jobs already? Are you using the on-host or off-host proxy server?
