I've been testing a new storage vendors appliance (Exablox) and have found an issue with restore speeds. This isnt specific to that vendor though, it seems to happen no matter what esxi environment (5.5), network speeds, servers, location, hardware.
I created some VeeamZip and standard backup jobs to the Exablox, CIFS Share on a 2008 Server and Exagrid. (All backups as per each vendors recommendations.) When trying to do a full VM restore, I get a max of about 12MB/s. I've been been trying to track the restore path and can see that I dont have any network or storage bottleneck. I can just do a direct copy of the devices at 100MB/s and backup to tape is quick.
Just after people ideas on where I can troubleshoot next?
Target Storage: HP 3PAR
Target ESXi: HP BL460c, IBM x3650M3
Target Hypervisor: ESXi 5.5
Thanks is advance.
