Veeam Replication

Post by Paddington »


I have plenty of free space on my backup-SAN. This SAN is not as fast as my production-SAN though.

1. Could I enable replicaton, or would that degrade performance on my production esx-san??
2. What are the benefits of having replication as well?

Hi Trond, I am not sure I fully understand your first question. Any backup and replication activities perform read from storage, which does add additional load on your production SAN. However, you can schedule both backup and replication for off-hours.

As for your second question, replicas provide much faster recovery in case of disaster since all you need to do is power on the replica VM, where is in case of backup you will need to restore backup first. The price for faster recovery is that replicas take much more of costly disk space.

Thank you!
