WAN Bandwidth Requirement

Post by scott.anderson »

Hi, Has anyone got any advice on how to calculate the WAN requirements of Veeam Replication?

I have a customer that is considering using Veeam Backup & Replication but wants to know what kind of link bandwidth will be needed prior to commiting to it.

I appreciate that its hard to predect the compression and de-duplication ratios that a specific set of VM's may achieve but is there any rule of thumb that I can give him?

At the moment All I've got from him is the volume of data on SAN and some SAN I/O stats for a high load period.

Any advice would be appreciated!

Hello Scott,

Yes, you're right, there are too many variables, but if you want to estimate WAN link bandwidth requirement, please look through these guidelines:

Hope this helps.

Hi Scott, if your thinking about implementing a DR accelerator, check out HyperIP, its a VM and can be downloaded and configured in about an hour.
