We have an Exchange server roughly 1TB in size, we are using CA ArcServe to backup our Exchange mailboxes. The data is split between 5 mail groups.
Our CA ArcServe is configured to do a full backup, Database Level Backup and using the active database. When the backup starts, it pulls down all 5 storage groups at once, each goes at rouhgly 150mb/min.
This to me sounds slow, does anyone know of any issues or ways to speed up exchange backups? They currently take 40+ hours to backup, delaying the tape write and the nightly job.
The exchange server is on VMWare infrastructure (vSphere 4.1.0, vCenter 4.1.0), the storage is Fibre.
