Disk cache to speed up backup

Post by Blue407 » Jul 16, 2019 8:07 am

Morning All

I have a dedicated Windows server with B&R installed, hyper-v VM's are backed up to local disk on the B&R server and then copy jobs push it elsewhere.

Can any sort of SSD cache be used to speed this up? The disks in the B&R server are slower than the Hyper-V Cluster storage so I was wondering if there is a way to use SSD storage on the B&R server (for example a 1-2Tb PCI SSD M.2 drive) to copy the backup files to, then immediately move them across to the slower internal storage.
B&R server has dedicated 10Gb network to the Hyper-V Cluster nodes.

Just spit-balling ideas here. :)

You can:

- Create backup jobs
- Set short retention for them
- Point them to SSD repository
- Create backup copy jobs
- Set longer retention for them
- Point them to slower internal storage
