backup suggestions

Veeam Logoby jamerson » Sat Jun 20, 2015 10:33 pm

Hi guys,
we are building a lab for testing and i need your suggestion how to configure the backup.
we have 2 virtual servers :
1 DC with 2 disks 100gb ssd and 1TB for data.
1 EX change with 1 disk 150
while creating the job i've enabled application aware processing and indexing while creating the job.
have one job for both servers .
is it a good idea to have a separated job for both servers ? or one job is enough ?
using the Veeam it own self as proxy.

please your thought on implementing this.

much appreciate it .

Hi Julien,
For most cases combining several VM in the same job is recommended due to better deduplication ratio.
However, it`s not considered as best practice to use virtual disks as backup repository. Thanks!

Did you enable indexing to do 1-click FLR operation? How much time does your job take? If you have any spare physical box, I would recommend to store backup there (Nikita has advised this above).
