I was wondering about a specific point in the architecture of VEEAM B&R when composed of multiple B&R virtual appliance... I've come up with two designs :
Design n°1 :
- one VM with VEEAM Backup and Replication Enterprise Manager and a local SQL Express install
- multiple VM with VEEAM Backup and Replication consoles and a local SQL Express install, reporting to the EM
Design n°2 :
- one VM with VEEAM Backup and Replication Enterprise Manager and a local SQL Standard install
- multiple VM with VEEAM Backup and Replication consoles whose DB are consolidated on multiple instances of the SQL Standard engine of the EM VM, reporting to the EM
I can't find a footnote about the limitations of EM or the backup console with SQL Express in terms of size of virtual infrastructure.
Obviously, the n°1 design is quite resilient because the loss of the EM won't affect the backup jobs running in the multiples B&R consoles however I'm concerned about the performance of the solution when it's scaling out.
On the other hand, the n°2 design is really elegant and optimized in terms of memory consumption an DB design since a single DB engine with multiple instance is much more optimized in terms of resources consumption than multiples little DB engines, right ? However, I suppose that if the EM fail, all the consoles fails.
I would really like to have your opinion on that matter, folks.
