We have added a new VMware 6.5 ESX cluster with new servers, iSCSI switches (10Gbit) and SAN (Compellent SC4020).
Our 9.5 veeam backup server that works great with our current/old WMware 5.5 cluster with 1Gb iSCSI switches and EQL SAN are having issues performing backups on the new cluster.
the backup server has been connected with a DP 10Gb card to the new 10Gb iSCSI switches and the VMFS Volumes have been mapped as read only.
During backups from the new SAN we get start/stop traffic of backup data and a VM of similar size takes a lot longer to backup on the new cluster compare with the old. By Start/stop I mean burst of 10s of 5gb/sec data and 30s of nothing... and it keeps repeating...
I have found very little information on the net for the combo of VMware 6.5, Compellent and Veeam
