If this has been discussed before (Which I imagine it has), feel free to direct me to that post. I attempted to find one similar, but had no luck.
I have been working with Support for some time to determine an issue with File Level Restore. We setup Veeam for our customer about 5 Months ago, and they attempted to perform a file level restore on a program that they use about 1 Month ago. The restored folder is about 30GB, and it was going to take over 1 day to restore. After investigation I found that the restore speed was hovering around 500KBps. While this folder does include smaller files, it seemed to slow down with files that were ~20-30MB. I worked with support to determine the issue, and they found that it was storage causing the problem (Case: 02370664), and closed the case. I re-opened the case with a new case (Case: 02452797)to ask for recommendations on what storage to purchase, and how it should be setup, and they referred me to these forums.
Here is some information on the setup:
3x Dell Poweredge R630 Servers with ESXi 6.0
1x Dell ScV2020 - (10Gb connected to servers)
Veeam infrastructure (Local):
Windows server 2008R2 Virtual Machine - Main Server, Proxy, Repository (32GB RAM, 8 Cores)
Synology RS814RP+ - 1Gb iSCSI connection to VMware, Mapped Raw LUN to Virtual machine (4x 4TB 7200RPM)
I am looking to replace the Synology storage with a faster storage. We are also looking to upgrade the amount of space because the full backup jobs take around 1.5TB, and we need some Monthly/Yearly retention. Should i just upgrade it with a higher end synology? If so is using iSCSI the best method, or would it be better to setup the synology as a linux repository?
Thank you for any help that you can offer! If you need more information please let me know.
