Hi all, we need to increase the backup speed of ESXI 6.5 server using Veeam 9.5 backup to NAS and currently we are using network mode, and speed is only 24mbp/s. We had ESXI 6.5 server, NAS and veeam server all using 1gbps NIC and connected to 1Gigybyte switch for backup. I know the throughput using network mode is the slowest but we cannot upgrade to 10gb switch due to price is too expensive. During further test, when using Virtual appliance mode speed is 50mbp/s but problem is we need to purchase OS license for the Veeam proxy on same ESXI server and also need to allocate resource. I want to ask
1. Our ESXI and NAS both had multiple NIC, and our switch support 802.1ad and LACP, if we connect multiple NIC to the network, will the backup speed increase using same network mode backup??
2. Can we using Direct Storage Access backup mode? Is it means we connect the NAS NIC to ESXI NIC direclty? Need to purchase any additional hardware and what need to to be add/change/setup on the ESXI host?
Any input and recommendation is fully appreciated
