In the case that you've described NBD via 1Gb NIC competes with a direct-SAN via 10Gb NIC, which is not fair Another thing to mention about direct-SAN via 10Gbit vs NBD via 1Gbit - only 2x faster, that's not very impressive.The management NIC is 1gb only.
I didn't want it to seem like I was defending NBD, I just wanted to point out that the comparison of 1Gb NBD and 10Gb direct-SAN via virtual proxy is not valid. I totally agree that NBD is the last resort in case no other option is available.There are other issues with NBD. The direct from SAN backup has many advantages
Sounds good. Just don't forget to assign proxy roles to repos. Otherwise, if no suitable proxies detected, your data may flow through Veeam Server (default proxy) or the whole job will failover to network mode. Also keep in mind system requirements.The repo's we are using have ample capacity to undertake the data mover role.
