Sorry to open such an old thread, but wondered if people could confirm if SSD caching on Synology NAS boxes improves the performance of Veeam merging operations?
Currently I'm running a forever incremental, where the backup file is 16TBs and the daily incrementals are about 300GBs. The actual backup takes about 4 hours, but the merge can take up to 13 hours. I'm trying to reduce the merge time and wondered if an SSD cache would help. I'm thinking that the SSD cache may help as this would improve random io writes but would like to be sure the performance with worth dropping a 4TB disk for
The repository is configured as an iSCSI datastore mounted via to an ESXi host, and then the disk presented to a windows 2012 backup proxy. I haven't installed the Veeam agent on the NAS box.
Any performance tips, or comments on anything that jumps out as wrong would be much appreciated
Thanks in advance,
