Database Size Requirements

Veeam Logoby robertmare » Thu Jan 20, 2011 8:13 pm

All,
I am in the process of preparing our environment for the install of the VEEAM Reporter and havent seen anything as to what the approximate size would be for the SQL database in an environment where we will initially be monotoring 20 hosts. We would like to retain data for a year.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Hello Bob,

Actually, we've got a calculator tool (not sure it will be available for public download, but I hope we'll be able to put it on our website), which should give you some numbers regarding possible DB size.

If you're going to have 20 hosts then you should probably have about 2 GBs for your DB (please note this number will also depend on the collection cycle you define). Though should more accurate estimations be nedeed, please send me a PM with the number of VMs, Datastores, dvSwitches, and average host configuration(vmhbas per host etc.)

Thanks!

Just wanted to update this topic that we've now got a Veeam Reporter Database Sizing Calculator available on the Reporter homepage under Resources section. Thanks!
