Good Morning Veeam.
Thank you for a wonderful product!
In the world of low budgets and high volumes of data, I think it would be very beneficial to be able to selectively pick and choose the destination repository per hyper-v or VMware disk (Yes, I understand that this may decrease de-duplication and may have an impact on speed, as well as increase complexity).
Client has multiple large servers (4tb Ms Exchange and other large servers).
Fileserver with 10tb of data across 5 .vmdk files (each .vmdk file is a separate windows volume)
x2 Backup servers with 28tb of useable RAID storage.
Reverse incremental backup type.
60 day retention with Active full backups scheduled to run every 30 days.
For us to run backups reliably and not run out of disk space we have created 2 jobs.
Job 1 VMware disk 0.0,0.1,0.2 pointed to repository "backup server 1"
Job 2 VMware disk 0.3,1.0 pointed to repository "backup server 2"
This causes instant restore jobs, vm file restores, and surebackup jobs to fail.
Creating an option within a single job to be able to send backups to separate repositories for each VM disk would be very useful (especially considering rapid grows in data sets).
At this time I am not aware of a backup application that would have this feature, so it will give Veeam an edge over other backup solutions (I know for a fact that this is not available in Acronis and Dell RapidRecovery).
