Veeam Wan Accelerator Sizing

Post by wjching » Jul 01, 2018 5:24 am

Hi All,

I am about to size the cache size for the source and target WA for one of my customer, I have the parameters for my calculation. But i need verification on the calculation before i submit it.

OS Type = 2
VM's = 9 VM's
Provisioned Storage = 8.5 TB (for 9 VM's)

Source WA

Digest Size = 5% of Provisioned VM Size, 5% of 8.5 TB = 425 GB

Target WA

Global Cache Data, where each OS type = 10 GB, 2 x10 GB = 20 GB
Digest Size = 2% of Provisioned VM Size, 2 % of 8.5 TB= 170 GB

Total required on Source WA storage = 425 GB
Total required on Target WA storage = 170 GB

Normally would it be recommended to add additional 10 - 20 % buffer on the values above ?

And as always thank you all in advance :)

Regards,
Wen Jun.
Thanks in advance for any suggestion or advice :D

Hi,

You should keep in mind that the target cache size will be multipled by the number of pairs configured for that particluar WAN accelerator in case of many-to-1 scenario. Also, for source cache +10GB buffer should be enough. In general, you calculations are in accordance with our best practices, please check them if you haven't done so yet.

Thank you
