Are there any new updates on bandwidth throttling options when going direct from device to cloud connect?
Arguably, this data path is more critical to throttle than direct from device to VBR.
The issue is that a direct device to cloud connect backup consumes the clients entire internet connection, regardless of location, causing issues for the user if they are using their device and potentially for other users fighting for bandwidth on the same internet connection.
Theoretically, since we typically manage the clients office infrastructure, we could take the time to design and implement QoS rules but that only helps if we manage the firewall/router at the clients office which is not always the case. This does not help once the client take the device offsite (laptop, tablet, etc).
Having a simple bandwidth limit setting under the backup (or global) settings of the VAW agent would be a great start.
Letting Veeam figure out the best throttle optimization (both CPU and bandwidth) would be great to.
Here are a few examples for competitor products:
What's the chance of getting this feature added in the next release?
