Depends on what kind of "load" you are talking about. If it's storage IO load then "yes". In case of Windows guest file recovery backup file from repository is mounted directly to VBR by without getting transferred. If you mean CPU and RAM load then "no" - VBR server still takes part in FLR operations.in the event of an guest files recovery taking place am I right in believing that all the "load" would still be on the physical server (the one with the repository hosting the backup files
Not sure what you mean here. Please elaborate.will the repos server, the one hosting the backup files, /still/ need to be the one that's 2012 to read the files?
If you're on v8 then you can keep your repo on 2008R2 as it just provides B&R with an access to backup files - all reading job is done on B&R side. However things differ a bit in v9 - if backup infrastructure gets upgraded from 8 to 9 then mount server will be moved to your default repository, so that repository has to be dedupe-ready as well for sucessfull FLR.However, as I want to move to a B&R server VM (for resilience) that I can replicate to our other site, but will still be keeping the repository/proxy server (as 2008 R2) I'm not sure where the Veeam 2012 de-dupe capability is required - on the B&R server to read the backup files, or on the repository server to "serve" the files?
