Recommended disk for Veeam backup storage?
Posted on 2012-03-12
We are implementing a virtual infrastructure with Cisco UCS blade servers and an EMC VNX SAN. I would like to use Veeam as our backup software, but don't want to backup to the disk (EMC VNX SAN) where our virtual data resides to begin with. We currently have a second Dell SAN however it has only 1.4 TB of free space remaining and I'd like to retain 30 days of backups with compression and dedup so figure I'll need more.
Another SAN would be rather expensive just for holding backups so I'm wondering what others are using that may be redundant, reliable and highly recommended by those who have been doing this longer?
