If the backup chain on the source backup repository was created using the reverse incremental backup method, Veeam backup copy job copies data blocks of the latest full backup thus causing high amounts of traffic going offsite. In your case that would be 4.5 TB daily. May I ask you what's the reason behind the decision to use reverse incremental backup chains? You should probably switch to a forever forward incremental mode in order to reduce the amount of data to be transferred.Two reverse incremental jobs,
Yes, you can setup a linux server as offiste repository and attach NAS directly to the linux host.rom what ive read ideally i would have a linux box on the offsite side with an agent? we have an unused server that could be used for this, however it is not able to contain enough storage, would a NAS alongside the server be the best solution for me here?
That's true only if you want to restore to the most recent restore points.<...>the reverse incremental gives us the quickest restore times<...>
No, there is no such way. You can choose to use "Transform into rollbacks" option if you want to have reverse incrementals but transform operation is IO heavy and will cause the job to run longer.Is there any efficient way for us to set up offsite backups using reverse incremental?
