Exchange database size limits with Veeam

Post by mikegodwin »

Microsoft has recommendations on the maximum suggested Exchange database sizes. For example, with Exchange 2010, the maximum database size is 16 TB, but they recommend keeping it under 200 GB, primarily for purposes of backup and recovery. This makes sense in the old days where you could only restore at 2GB/hour. But with Veeam does it matter how large the databases are? Is there any benefit to splitting up a large database into several smaller databases as it relates to restoring with Veeam?

Hi Mike,

I don't believe there are any size recommendations for Exchange database if you want to run an application item restore job with Veeam.
