Forecasting storage requirements for monthly backups?

Veeam Logoby ceez » Thu Dec 11, 2014 6:31 pm

Hello all, using Veeam ONE v8. The current capacity planning gives the option on how much storage to store for x amount of days, the default is 30 days. But I would like to know how much storage I need to store anywhere between 6-12 months of FULL reverse incremental only. Unless I am not looking hard enough, I don't find a report what is able to give me this info.

thanks!

Hi Cesar,

Do you want to know how much space will be required for full backups only of reversed incremental mode? What about backup files growth, that can show the trend of backup files size growth? How often do you run your backup jobs?

Thanks!

I run my jobs daily and currently have 4 different jobs with 7 day retention. So for those jobs, what is the total space required every month to put a monthly away.

I dont think I have enough history (About 1 month) to forecast backup file size growth.

Backup files growth report is based on historical information, it does not do forecasting. I was just trying to determine current backup file size and check the trend and then multiply it by 6-12 (according to the number of months you want to keep your backups for). Can you please generate this report?
