Report to size the VBR Environment

Post by dcampregher » Feb 08, 2017 4:05 pm

Hello,

In some cases we need show to our customers one sizing about a possible VBR environment. Is there a report specific to a VBR sizing ?

Hi Diogo,

You can use these reports to show the configuration of the backup server and understand whether it is sized properly or not:
1. Backup Infrastructure Assessment
2. Capacity Planning for Backup Repositories
3. Backup Job Historical Information (to review common bottlenecks)
4. Backup Inventory (to review current backup infrastructure configuration)
5. Veeam Backup & Replication Summary Dashboards (these predefined dashboards can also give you a clue on how your backup infrastructure is behaving)

Let me know if that helps!

Hello Vitaly,

Today the customer don't use the VBR but they are planning to buy the VBR in the close future. So, i need to know the infrastructure of the customer before request resources to a backup repository ( like a CPU, memory am storage ).

Example. I need a report that show for me the size off all virtual machine disk that are able to be backued up, like the information wich the VBR show when we are configuring a backup JOB.

Ok, in this case, I would recommend to run these reports:
1. VM Configuration Assessment (this will show you potential VM configuration issues for the backup job)
2. VM Change Rate Estimation (this will give you a ballpark number for VM change rate)
3. VMs Configuration (this will give the overview of all VMs size, their tools state etc.)

By the way there are some sizing tools created by our system engineers.
One calculates size of backups.
Another suggest configuration of backup infrastructure objects based on VI size.
Thanks!
