Replication - Nic Teaming/Aggregating Bandwidth

Veeam Logoby DrWhy » Tue May 19, 2015 4:56 pm

We have a large VM (60TB VMDK) that we need to replicate to a second host. I want to increase the bandwidth available for this large replication job by aggregating the traffic across multiple nic's. Is this possible? If so, how? Thank you.

Hello Caleb,
NIC teaming link aggregation should work. There are a bunch of Microsoft articles explaining it according to different versions of Windows OS.
Besides, you can leverage Veeam`s WAN acceleration tool. And for the first run replica seeding is also helpful.
