i´m pretty new with Veeam so i have a Question.
I have a ESXI 6 Host with 1 Virtual Machine running Server 2012 R2 Standard at the moment.
Also i have a QNAP TS-253A. I want to use Veeam B&R for my Backups because i want to perform Live Migration during a Worst Case Scenario.
Now my Question:
With a Server 2012R2 Standard License i can activate 2 VM´s on my Host. (One is already activated)
Now im thinking on where to install the Backup Server?
I mean i could install it on the same Host where i want to perform a Backup.
With this Option i have not to buy 1 more OS License only for Veeam.
But for Performance its better to install Veeam on a seperate Server right?
So i need to buy 1 more License to ,for example, install Server 2012R2 as VM on the QNAP NAS (includes a Virtualization Station where i can install VM´s)
and install Veeam on it.
Can u Guys maybe tell me Newbie whats the Best Practice in my Scenario ?
Thanks in advance!
