What to do?

Veeam Logoby PaulVM » Wed Jul 27, 2016 4:47 pm

I have the following kit
Dell Compellent 10GbE iSCSI
3 Hyper-V Hosts each with 2 x 10GbE ports and 4 x 1GbE ports
2 x 10 GbE switches each with 8 ports
1 x Physical Server with attached storage for Veeam / repository

Given the Customer has no replay license it seems I cannot use the Physical Box for a Off Host Proxy
The customer wanted the 10GbE switches for iSCSI only that can be stacked if required

Why view is to maximise Veeam throughput I should use the 2 x 10GbE NICs per server for everything (Management / iSCSI/ Cluster/ Live Migration) using a LBFO team as if I just use the 10GbE for iSCSI I'm limiting Veeam to 1GbE interfaces. Thoughts?

Best practice would be 2 standalone 10gb NICs for storage traffic using MPIO (or SMB multichannel with SMB 3.0) and then two 10gb NICs in a team for virtual machines and live migration/host/cluster traffic.

If you set up QoS you could have the iSCSI traffic shared with your virtual machines, see the second config from this page:
