Veeam Agent for Windows and EMC Data Domain Boost Protocol Support

Post by stormman » Jul 04, 2019 7:48 am

Hi,
I'm trying to find a clarifying statement in the Veeam documentation or KB articles to confirm if using VAW to backup into an EMC Data domain Boost enabled repository is supported and takes advantage of the Boost protocol ?

This is using a managed agent from Veeam B&R

Unfortunately I can't see anything in the documentation which definitively supports this, I have set this up and it appears to works fine and the backups transfer rate is around 30% - 40% quicker than when I use a CIFS share on the same repository so I am assuming it is taking advantage of this protocol.

Would anyone be kind to confirm if VAW can take advantage of the Data domain Boost protocol and this is a fully supported method when using VAW ?

Hello,
yes it works with VAW.

https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backu ... l?ver=95u4 - last sentence says that it only does not work with Linux Agent

Best regards,
Hannes
