Bidirectional WAN Acceleration

Veeam Logoby lowlander » Thu May 12, 2016 5:58 am


We have two sites. On each site we have a physical server with WAN accelerator configured. When defining a copy job on each site (copy the backup to the second site repository), the job of site B has to wait until site A is finished.

Is there a tweak to use both WAN accelerators in parallel, and what would be a good alternative ?

thanks !

I'd say it should be able to process both directions in parallel, so recommend opening a case to take a closer look at what happens. The only limitation here is that WAN accelerator acting as a source one can only process one task at a time, but should be able to process other tasks assigned to it within a job that uses it as a target accelerator.

I'd also try to tweak the limit of maximum concurrent tasks on both repositories as well as read/write data rates limit.
