2 new veeam backup/respository servers

Post by champ_ » Sep 28, 2016 1:00 pm

Hi,

We have two main sites that we are planning to start using veeam on and send backup copy from one Veeam server to the other Veeam server. I'm just now planning on the storage requirements on both sites. I have used the Restore point simulator but I´m intrested installing server 2016 with dedup on both servers. How do I calclute the storage needs for both servers? What Dedup grade can i suspect to get from the volume containing the backup copy data?

Hi,
Dedupe rate is something that`s really hard to predict. Have you tried to use VBR in your lab? Do you also want to leverage WAN Acceleration?
Thanks!

Hi

No, the customer has good WAN connection(100mb) and don't have enterprise plus license. I havent played around with server 2016 dedup and veeam backup copy jobs yet..

If you have hardware repository deduplication and good network speed, it`s recommended to disable inline job deduplication since hardware one is to give better results.
