SQL design considerations...?

Post by Matts N »

Hello all!
I'm about to design a fairly large Veeam B&R solution and can't find any hints or recommendations on which database engine to use for B%R itself. I know the product comes with SQL Express, but are there any limitations as to how many VM's, jobs or whatever an Express installation can hold? Any other reasons for choosing a full SQL instead of Express, like one database engine with multiple databases as opposed to several database engines?

Would suggest that a good answer here goes into the FAQ... :roll:

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for that very speedy response, Alexey. I assume the same information is valid for version 5.0 as well...?

On top of that, v5 added automatic retention policy to backup/restore sessions history, so configuration database will no longer grow forever. Thanks!
