we want to backup some remote locations. We are currently not sure if the wan bandwidth will be sufficient to backup directly into HQ. Additionally a local backup might be a good idea for fast disaster recoveries. The number of VM's and the amount of data can vary from 1-2 VM's and 0,5-2 TB to 10-20 VM's with > 10 TB.
First of all, what would be the basic setup for this?https://helpcenter.veeam.com/backup/70/ ... te_bu.html
- I think I'll need a proxy at the remote site in all cases, if I directly backup to HQ over wan I have to choose the proxy at the remote site manually (Edit Backup Job -> Storage -> Backup Proxy)?
- where can I choose the remote backup proxy for a backup copy job? Or is this not necessary at all?
- when do I need a WAN accelerator, should I use it for all wan connections regardless of their bandwidth ?
- can I use wan acceleration for backup jobs or backup copy jobs only?
Does anyone have a recommendation for a scalable storage/NAS device that has a reasonable price and can be monitored? Not something for home use.
