I'm trying to find an ideal solution for scheduling backup and backup copy jobs in VEEAM9.
~50 VMs with ~10TB Data in total, Backup and Backup Copy jobs
I have set up 6 forever forward Backup jobs with equal backup size, each job is ~1TB on disk on one single RAID10.
The jobs are staggered by 1-2 hours, depending on the average run time of each Backup job and its Copy Job.
Each Backup Job is complemented by a Backup Copy job which is started right after the Backup. These jobs flow to three RAID5 Arrays.
I'm quite happy with this setup so far.
But I also need to schedule frequent healthchecks and compact jobs. Unfortunately these are tied into the Backup and Backup Copy jobs, run either before or after the backup taks, and influence the I/O load on the storage during the backup window.
I'd perfer to be able to run these outside my backup window, i.e. during the day or over the weekend, when there is plenty of I/O to spare.
Would this be possible in an upcoming Veeam 10?
