Best Performance

Post by Bockelbrink » Dec 08, 2009 1:28 pm

Hello

we are fresh with the Veeam Backup. We used it at a new customer to backup the whole vSphere Essentials Plus Infrastruktur. The vSphere Server uses an Intel Blade System with a lokal Shared Storage System. Each Blade can access the Storage.

We uses an Windows 2008 R2 Backup Server on an own Hardware. Which is the best way to get the fastest Backup? Hope some can help. We have teste the vStorage API and the VCB Backup. We have a transfer rate at 30mb/s. I hope we get more performance. we uses dual gigabit lan to connect to the blade system.

Thank you

Bye
Marco

Do you use iSCSI shared storage? If yes, do you use hardware HBA card, or Microsoft Software iSCSI initator?

Hello

we don't have an iSCSI Storage. The Intel Modul Server can made an Shared Storage for the Blades through the COntroller. It is a local Storage which is shared to the blades

Ah, OK. If it is locally attached storage, then this is known issue, it is described here:
Network backup slow on vSphere ESX 4.0

There is little you can do if you have the local storage, however incremental backup should be a few times faster for you. Try running the job again after full backup completes.
