Veeam for AHV with Dell EMC Data Domain

Post by lober » Dec 12, 2019 6:31 pm

We migrated all our VMs from ESX to Nutanix AHV last summer.
2 Nutanix clusters, and 2 Dell EMC Data Domain as repository.
Each site has a Nutanix cluster and a Data Domain.
Nutanix VMs backuped to local Data Domain, and backuped copy to the remote Data Domain.
We had to change from ddboost protocol to CIFS shares, and storage performance has decreased.
Backuped data is growing faster than we expected.
Is there any best practices for our configuration ?
I would appreciate any help.
Thanks !

Your best bet is to wait for Veeam Backup & Replication v10 which includes v2 of our AHV solution. The update will fully support DDBoost, and switching back to Boost from CIFS should take care of some of your issues.
