Replication process

Post by cby »

Hi

My understanding regarding Veeam replication is that once the initial vmdk seed has been replicated on the remote host's storage the subsequent replicas are simply the deltas (from non-excluded VM disks) which are 'injected' into the seed vmdk, thus creating a synthetic full vmdk. I am sure I read this somewhere in the Veeam documentation but cannot locate the information now!

Is this correct?

I ask because I need to specify n/w bandwidth and potential throughput for various speeds. The size of the nightly replica will have a bearing on this.

Thanks.

Hello, yes this is correct. To reduce required bandwidth, you want to replicate to full ESX on target, as this will allow us to use agent on target, which serves for traffic compression and performs VMDK rebuild locally (instead of remotely over WAN).

Here is the link where you likely read it (towards the end):
