Join disks to one backup repository

Post by martinf » Feb 15, 2013 8:56 am


we are just designing our veeam infrastructure. We would like to use one server with 4x1TB disks as backup repository. Is it possible to join these disks in order to have one bigger backup repository ? (something like JBOD).

VB&R sees these disks in the same manner they are seen by Windows Server. If in Windows Server they are represented as the separate disks, there will be no difference in VB&R view.

Additionally, it’s not possible to create something like JBOD by the means of VB&R.

Hope this helps.

If it's a windows server, you can use dynamic disks and create a spanned volume. Many of the activities can be done without disrupting anything, given the fact at least one disk at a time can be erased.
