Vitaliy S. wrote:On a side note, how do you protect the vCenter Server? Do you also host is on that very SAN and plan to replicate it to another storage?
maxxer wrote:Yes, the vCenter is on the same SAN. My colleague is looking into that, do you have suggestions?
maxxer wrote:is it possible to estimate timing for the cloning process, both for full and incremental? I know it's kind of a guess... But for example estimating the time for a 1TB Windows 2012 file server (thus with limited file changes during the day), running on a SAN with a FC/iSCSI connection, Gigabit interface to the backup hi-end NAS?
Vitaliy S. wrote:It's hard to estimate, but you can safely assume that it will be more or less in-sync with the time required to the backup job (if you're already doing it), and incremental runs will be much quicker than full passes (assuming CBT is going to used).
