I'm wondering if anyone can advise of the best way to utilise a pair of physical servers for Veeam backup.
I want to keep the backup server mainly away from the virtual estate, with the exception of the SQL databases and a possibly a virtual proxy added later. I've got two decent physical servers at my disposal and want to try and combine the resources of these in the most efficient way possible.
Lets assume the two physical servers have shared storage, I was thinking of possibily separating out the Backup Server and Enterprise Manager installs, one on each server. These could really go on one box, so Is there any recommended way to scale out the workloads across to another server in this scanario? Perhaps I could assign the second server as a mount server within backup jobs for example to get best use of both boxes?
I suppose I'm looking for advice on the most efficient split of roles I had two servers to use.
On a side note, taking this in another direction, does Veeam support being installed on a Microsoft applicaiton cluster? I can't see anything about installing the Backup server in a high availability configuration.
