we need to buy a new veeam server and I need some hardware recommendations.
veeam essentials, 2 esx hosts with local storage, 10gigabit network connection. 20-25 VMs, ~4TB data size, 2,5~TB backup size, incrementals ~100GB.
The veeam server will be a physical server standalone for all veeam roles (local disk repository).
1) CPU XEON E3-1230V5 vs E5-2620V4
Will the small E3 with 4c/8t be ok or do I need the E5 with 8c/16t ?
2) We will use 8x NL-SAS HDDs
We are undecided if we use RAID6 with 4TB disks and a LSI 9361 Controller (1GB Cache) OR RAID10 with 6TB disks and a LSI 9341 Controller (no cache).
What will be the best solution for the Backup Repository?
Thanks a lot!
