Recommended Hardware Specification for Appliance

Post by foxj77 »

Hi All,

We are running Veeam Backup as a virtual machine and it is running fine in applicance mode. We are running the VM on a Dell 2950 2 x quad core xeon processors and plenty of RAM left over. We are running the VM with 2 vCPUs and 4gb RAM.

What is the recommended speccfication for the virtual machine? Is it worth us looking to upgrade the vCPU and ram. I know with our physical veeam backup server the more cores and ram the better. What configurations is everyone else running on the Veeam backup VM?

Hi John,

Basically, you need to make sure your server meets recommended system requirements, please review the corresponding section of the Release Notes document provided with your download.

In order to get maximum performance out of a Virtual Appliance backup mode you need to configure this VM with 4 vCPUs. RAM resources are not that important, so there is no need to allocate more.
