Struggling with this one and only similar thread was under feature requests.
Objective is to copy backup sets from onsite DataDomain to offsite DataDomain.
Putting DataDomain based mirrors aside for one moment, we have tested two possible Veeam configurations.
Source DD Repo => Specified Onsite Gateway proxy => WAN Link => specified target gateway proxy => target Repo
With this setup network throttle rule is applied and respected. But job progress is painfully slow.
Am I right in thinking that as setup A doesn't use DDBoost over the WAN and rehydrates data, thus progress is slow?
Source Repo => Auto gateway selection, always chooses onsite Veeam Backup Server => DDBoost over WAN => target DD
This seems great for progress, but network throttle rule is not applied.
Can we have this setup but with some control over bandwidth consumed on the WAN?
Why is it the onsite Veeam Backup server doing all the work rather than one of the available proxies?
Veeam WAN Accelerators is not possible due to size of datasets involved.
DataDomain replication giving offsite read-only mirror of source. Pros and Cons of this are understood.
Any insights welcome.
