Re: No Catalyst Copy support?

Post by johna8 » Oct 11, 2016 6:36 pm

Initially it will say source but this is probably the time to work out the differences.
It mentions throttling majority of the time but I also did remove throttling to test (it still seemed to say throttling as well with it disabled). Also limited the copy repository to maintain 1 concurrent job with no multithreads enabled.

WAN accel isn't required by us as traffic over the WAN isn't an issue.
It's having to replicate fast enough offsite.

I was hoping to get other people's feedback on what average copy job read MB/sec they were seeing across the WAN?
Is 25MB/sec too much for the unit that's around a 200Mbps link. If it can do more then I would investigate more WAN capacity only if it can maintain and saturate the link. Although the 3540 are on the lower end of the StoreOnce portfolios.

Regards
John

There're many factors that could affect performance, that's why I asked about the major bottleneck for the completed job. Throttling can also be reported as bottleneck if repository read and write data rates are limited in the repository wizard (meaning that the speed of reading/writing from/to repository is throttled).

Ah yes - to update sorry it would appear to be our network throttling slowing the BCJ right down.
Will be investigating towards WAN capacity and see how we go. Thanks

Nothing has changed in regard to Catalyst Copy so far, but it is still on the table.

Nope, the last Foggy's reply is still valid.

Veeam Backup and Replication is a great product! But, they really need to add functionality to leverage Catalyst Copy. The copy/replication process is MUCH more efficient when the copy/replication happens from the deduped storage appliance vs re-hydrating the data and Veeam sending it to the destination. By the way..... a second-rate competitor (Backup Exec) has support for Catalyst Copy.

Yesterday I upgraded one my StoreOnces to the new Firmware 3.16.1, in the release notes I found the following: "Support for Managed copies for Veam." Is there something new on the way?

Looks like some API enhancements on their side for us to use in future.

We cannot share the exact release vehicle that will contain this functionality. Having said that, this functionality is in the works. Thanks!
