Question about backup jobs through VC or to host

Post by Ace T »

We currently have backup jobs through our Veeam servers to access VC servers rather than the host directly.

My question is that if we have a location with a Veeam server and a host but are trying to backup or replicate through the VC which is at another site, can this cause problems or errors as the Veeam server has to access the VC at another site and come back to the host at the current site ?

We have noticed speed issues and some errors now and again but just wanted to know what is best practice ? Go direct to the host or go through the VC ?

Hello Amit,

The best practice is to use vCenter connection rather than connect to the hosts directly, but the second variant would also work.

Additionally I'd suggest you to install Veeam backup server on the remote site, which hosts your source VMs, and see whether you have any speed improvements. You can have a look at Pros and Cons of installing backup server at different locations, to see what suits you best.

And remember if you choose to have backup server on the remote site you will be able to manage Backup deployment easily via Enterprise Manager console.

As for the issues you're experiencing with the product don't hesitate to contact our technical support team and ask for assistance.

Thank you!
