DataDomain configuration

Post by marcy »

Hello,

I have a question about VEEAM B&R (version 9.5b) in combination with a DataDomain DD2200 with a total of 12TB memory capacity.

Via Backup Copy Job we backup the entire VMWare environment every five days and keep 2 revisions.
According to VEEAM the size is about 9.47TB.

Now we have the problem that the storage capacity of the DataDomain is running low (< 1TB) and the question is whether there is a problem with the configuration or deduplication of the DataDomain.

The backup contains two larger VMs (Exchange 1.9TB, File 1.5TB) and otherwise only very many small VMs.

Hello,
the values shown in the Veeam UI are not really relevant. Veeam does not know about the details on data reduction happening on a deduplication appliance.

https://www.veeam.com/kb1745 links to https://support.emc.com/kb/534885 with the best practices. That whitepaper should have all configuration options included.

Best regards,
Hannes
