Some general question before buying

Post by menced » Jul 30, 2013 5:46 pm

I have some general easy questions:

1) veeam essentials include veeam backup and veeam one, right?

2) with veeam can i make hot backups? (backups while VM continue to work and users can connect and work with them?

3) can i save backup data on external QNAP?

Hi Simone,

1. Yes it does.
2. Yes, Veeam B&R can do this.
3. Yes, you can. Just add your QNAP device as a backup repository and target your backup jobs to this device.

3. With regards to RAID level, it’s always advisable to have RAID 10 for backup repository, since both 5 and 6 has a certain IOP penalty, which might result in decreased backup performance, especially, if reversed incremental is being used.

As to point 2), i made/make a lot of backups on vSphere5 with running VM and never had any trouble.
