I am using Veeam 9.5 and it is installed on my Windows Server 2016 server. This server is also my SAN running Starwind Virtual SAN and is an iSCSI target for my two ESXi 6 hosts.
I have setup Direct SAN access for my Veeam backups and the speeds are just spectacular! I get 300-400MB/s speeds when the backups happen and I am very happy
The problem is when I do an actual restore. The other day I had to restore my entire environment so was restoring all my VMs (one at a time) and got speeds between 25-50MB/s which I thought was really slow? Is this normal? I'm using 1Gb for my management and iSCSI network so I was expecting to get at least 90-110MB/s?
Is there anything i can do to speed up Veeam restores? Is Direct SAN writes possible?
