[MERGED] Options to split huge VBK files

Post by deepak.irani » Aug 10, 2018 10:20 am

HI All,

We have backup of a single drive which is 8 TB in size. For secondary storage option we are using azure blobs. Limitation with blob is to have 4.6 TB of single file. We can not use per VM vbk as only one server is the object for backup here.

Hi DeepakR,

There is no tool to split large VBK in the current version of the product.
However, your post is counted as a feature request, thank you!

Another +1.

I have several hosts (some VM some Veeam Agent for Windows hosts) that have up to 25TB disks. I'd like to split them up. Especially since when backing up to SMB repos where Kerberos has a 10hour timeout. If separate files were written out, the ticket would be updated within the window.

Another +1 for this.
We're hitting a 4TB max file size problem on our Isilon.

@DGrinev: Is there a list online where we could see, if Feature Requests will be/have been tackled ?
Thx

Hey,

There is no way to track FRs online, since they are noted in the internal system which is available only for Veeamers. Thanks!

Question: does Isilon support S3 interface?

@Gostev: I don't think so. There is only a thing called CloudPool, where you could connect the Isilon to S3 storage in the cloud. I think the Dell EMC ECS storage has it's own S3 interface.

We asked for this feature 6 months ago. Tired of waiting with no idea if it would happen we had to move to a competitor. What ever happened to v10?

I don't think they ever committed to implementing the feature. Sadly, the common destination for most customer requests (with most software vendors, not just Veeam) is eternal hold.

That is a fair thing to say. With hundreds of pending feature requests, 95% of them will remain in "eternal hold" - with only the most pressing ones ever getting a chance to be implemented.

Maybe already too late. But let me add here that there is dsmISI Load Balancer Software that split our workload in a way that all Isilon nodes work on a single Veeam write/read stream in parallel and as well split the backup file. So performance plus and no file sice limitation anymore.
