Veeam public statistics

Post by tduval » Sep 10, 2018 8:22 am

Hi all,

I'm sizing a backup infrastructure for a customer and wanted to know if Veeam gathered some 'statistics' as information purposes like average data compression/reduction ratio, average daily changes % seen on customers etc...
These kind of public insight would be greatly appreciated from us I think.

If not, is anyone could share with me their average Data reduction ratio seen with WAN Acceleration, % daily changes, etc... ?

Thanks for your reply, but I'm seeking for the crowd statistics of everyone's submission. My customers doesn't have Veeam and we try to estimate a correct and real-life value for thoses type of metrics.

I thought Veeam could provides us with some worldwide statistics gathered from their customer's has a 'guidelines'.

Please check http://vee.am/rps
You will find some suggestions in the dropdowns.

As well on this one in case of WAN reduction.
http://vee.am/bandwidth
Set the change rate to 100% for the initial job run and to some low %tages (see the other tool) for incremental processing.

I thought more about something like:
  • "x% of Veeam customers gets a Data reduction ratio of xxx with WAN Accelerator"
  • "x% of Veeam customers has a daily changes rate of xxx"
Those kind of assertion based on Veeam Customer's experience or others tools that you use to gathered some intel.

I already used the tools, but you know there's a difference between a 5x data reduction with WAN Accel and a 30x still with WAN Accelerator.
Just wanted to get more real-world insight from Veeam team but nevermind.

It will be sort of the same type of metric as "average temperature of all patients in the hospital" though, so not very useful for planning purposes.
For planning, you should always assume you will have worse-than-average numbers, so that you're planning for a worst case scenario.

5x data reduction is a good "worst-case" number to use for WAN acceleration, and as far as I remember, RPS already uses "worst-case" numbers for compression and change rate.
