Backup Exec 2010 / WAN Accelerator
Posted on 2010-09-16
Running into a de-duplication issue using Backup Exec 2010 and a Silverpeak NX 2600 WAN Accelerator.
Apparently, our Silverpeak device is not able to de-dupe the Backup Exec data because they are claiming the data is compressed.
I double checked the backup job settings and verified that compression was set to NONE.
My question is, does Backup Exec natively compress data even though the setting is turned off?
Basically, Backup Exec is sending the data from a server at our main branch to a NAS at our remote branch over the WAN. We have a channel bonded T1 and we only getting 19MB transfer speeds.
I also wasn't sure if Symantec would go through enough trouble to make it where their data counldn't be de-duped unless you purchased thier de-dupe solution...
Any help here would be appreciated.
