Backup Job Limitations

Post by jnap »

Hello,

I think this question already exists or existed on this forum but as i don't find the answer I ask it anyway :

How many VMs maximum can we put into a veeam backup job, with Per-VM backup file option?

Is there a data size limitation also, per job?

Thanks!

Hello,
There is no such a limitation.
How many VMs and data amount would you like to protect with a single job?

I have today too many jobs. I want to minimize, so I have to know before how to rationalize them if there is a limitation with the number of VMs or the amount of data

Thanks

Hello,

I agree, there is no such limitation however I'd suggest to think about the number of tasks you're going to process in parallel and to plan proxy and repository resources accordingly.
Please take a look at our release notes for more information about system requirements.

Thanks!

Adding 2 cents to Petr's post. You can also use Veeam ONE heatmaps to get visual representation of proxy and repository load.
