Best way for DataDomain and Replication

Veeam Logoby marcy » Fri Jun 23, 2017 7:26 am

Hello,

we're using VEEAM Backup & Replication to backup our vmware infrastructure. Every night we're backup our to the local backupserver via lan.
So in the last days we're bought two datadomain systems. no we want to backup our vmware infrastructure to these systems.
the question is, what is the better way. backup direct to one of the datadomain? or to use backup copy job and copy the existing backups from local disk to datadomain.

what do you do? we're hold backups for the last 31 days on local disk. what is the best configuration by backup to datadomain?

and can we use the internal replication feature of datadomain or is it better to backup/copy direct from veeam to the another datadomain.

regards

This.

is it better to backup/copy direct from veeam to the another datadomain.

This for the reasons stated here (different storage, but the same paradigm applies).

Okay, so it is better to copy from VEEAM the backups two both datadomains and dont use the replication mechanism from datadomain?

Correct, it's better to backup data first to local storage to guarantee fast restores and archive data via backup copy to secondary destination (datadomain) for long-term retention purposes. Thanks.
