Synolgy repo in VEEAM

Post by jamerson » Aug 07, 2018 10:21 am

Dear all,

We have bought a Synology DS918+ + 24 TB and want to use it for VEEAM backup .

We do own a VEEAM backup license and want to keep using it .

We do have two host

Host 1 ESXI 6.7 running two VMS ( Windows server 2012R2 Datacenter with 16TB storage)

Host 2 ESXI 6.7 running VEEAM BACKUP Server replication the Windows Server 2012R2 from ESXI 1 to ESXI 2, also its running a daily backup job.

Our manager has bought Synology DS918+ + 24 TB and we want to map it as a isci on the VEEAM server on the esxi 2 to backup the 2012R2 16 TB server to the NAS.

AFAIK there are two options

1. Connect our NAS via ISCSI on Windows machine, and store the backups from Veeam there

2. or make a VMDK on NAS datastore in vSphere (it's already connected via iSCSI to vSphere), and then add this disk to the VEEAM server

i beleive option 1 is recommended to use in our senario.

Can you please advies or share your experience regarding this ?

Thank you

Hi Julien, you should go with 1 for sure, otherwise you may complicate your recovery process significantly depending on the disaster scenario. Thanks!

Hi Gostev
it doesn't matter if the VEEAM server is on the ESXI 02 and NAS Database is on the LAN side ?
We wouldn't expirience any speed problems ?

Big thank you

I don't think LAN bandwidth will be a problem considering these sort of NAS have extremely low IOPS capacity (in other words, they are super slow).
