A customer of ours I currently using HP dataprotector with an LTO5 library. They have a back-up speed of around 128mb/s.
Because they have a lot of data their back-up tapes up to 18 hours and they want to have it faster.
We want to offer them Veeam Enterprise with a LTO7 unit but the customer is sceptical about it. They think that HP to HP is always the fastest.
When I look at this link about LTO speeds: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linear_Tape-Open
I see that LTO7 can have speeds up to 300mb/s and I would like to know if it is reasonable to think that we can make that kind of speed. They have a HP DL380e Gen8 E5-2420v2 back-up server and the libraty can the connected directly to it.
Would it be possible for the server/disks/Veeam to get to a speed of 300mb/s or are they better of with Dataprotector?
