Best way to present target NAS storage

Post by icebun »

Using a QNAP NAS, I am able to present the destination storage as either a Windows SMB share or NFS Datastore once seen by the ESX hosts.

Does anyone know the best option?

In terms of performance I am seeing about the same.

The other option is to install File Services for UNIX and get the Veeam server to see the NFS share as a client without having to get the ESX hosts to see it as well.

I understand the closer the storage target is to the Veeam server, the better.

Any advice would be helpful.

SMB share is fine. Less complexity, same performance.
