If I do a full weekly backup and many incremental backups with BE 2010 and then do nightly replication using veeam on weekdays, how does the veeam keep track of change block then? the BE also takes a snapshots. When i run BE backup and then right click the VM and look at snapshots I see the snapshot it took and then i see You are here below it, then when I do the veeam replication and i check the VM snapshots again I see the veem backup under the symantec incremental snapshot. I assume they track their own snapshots, so in a mix like this how can I take snapshots by multiple apps from the same VM and still be able to give each app its own level of change block? or let me reword this question, how can I achieve Symantec GRT with veeam replication?
by the way, veeam backup speed does not go beyond 9-10MB/sec while from symantec BE i can get anywhere from 2000-3000MB/Min.
Anyone else doing something like this? thanks,

Expected performance figures for Veeam Backup on ESX4 for average storage hardware is 50MB/s for full backup, and 500MB/s for incremental backup. More results posted on these forums by various customers are consolidated here. So it could be that your Veeam server lacks CPU power, using non-optimal job processing mode, issues with target storage or network connectivity on Veeam server, etc.
Of course replication also depends on link speed and target host (ESX vs. ESXi), but in all cases if you have vSphere I would expect at least 10-20 times faster speed on the incremental replication passes over decent link.
