Hello,
Thanks for the feedback. Indeed for now you need to use regular media pool for daily tape backups.
We are going to implement the feature of daily backups in GFS media pool in future versions.

Hi,

Is there any update in the parallel processing feature? GFS is a nice feature that adds convenience over normal media pools. Giving it a performance burden over normal media pools, when obviously the parallel processing mechanism is already tried and tested is most frustrating. Also, when using per vm files, better tape job error handling would be welcome.... If I have a tape copy job (GFS or not) that includes 5 vms and the job fails... Surely we should be able to identify with VM we were copying to tape at the time, rather than ditching the whole copy set?

Thanks!

This request has been tracked already and will be covered in one of the future releases. However, we cannot share specifics at this point of time. Thanks.

Hi Vladimir,

Thanks for the confirmation. Does this cover both the parallel processing AND the error handling?

[MERGED] parallel tape processing GFS media pools

Veeam Logoby Fredo » Mon Aug 21, 2017 7:26 am

My feature request is to enable parallel tape processing for GFS media pools. In this case, one GFS tape backup job, can use two tape drives simultaneously.

Our weekly GFS tape backup jobs need a lot of time to complete. Because of this time-consuming tape backup jobs, we have two tape drives. It would save more time, if we could combine those two drives, in one tape job. Unfortunately, that is not possible at this moment. That's why we have two GFS tape jobs; one for each tape drive. We would rather use one GFS tape backup job which can use both drives simultaneously. More info here: https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backup/vsphere/parallel_processing.html?ver=95
