Nice tests and good comparison.

Would be good to see your results as well for GFS retention criteria. This for me at least is where Dedupe appliances such as the DD come into their own as a secondary storage target for longer term retention (backup copy jobs). Would be good to compare that against Server 2012 dedupe though as already requested :D. For recovery speeds though, JBOD / Veeam Native is far quicker in my experience.

What Veeam Job compression level is better with a data domain storage? In my jobs i put "none" in that field bacause i prefer that is DD make dedu. But is it really the better choise?

Thanks.

The DD is first of all using the DDboost mechanism which is very good for less network throughput.
The DD reduction will be very very good after that so i would recommend it for you. Don't use veeam's side therefore you have the option of Dedplication appliance as Repository.

It makes no difference :-)

As long as you do not have a gateway server in front of your DD it is irrelevant which compression level you use as this setting is ignored if proxy and repository are on the same server. Compression can save bandwidth if you have a gateway server but it has no influence on DD data reduction in any case. Reason:

If you add a DD as repository it will automatically be configured with the "decompress backup data blocks before storing" setting
