Per VM backups and deuplication - Same OS

Post by adriani »

Hi.
I rememeber to have read somewhere that it is recommendd in order to get best results with dduplication, to group VMs in a backup job by OS. Does this rcommendation still hold even if Per VM backup files option in a backup job is enabled?

Thank a lot.

Hi.
With Per-VM Backup files there is no deduplication between VMs, so "grouping" recommendation does not make sense in terms of space savings for that case.
/Cheers!
