Currently in our infrastructure, we have 11 Citrix servers totalling at about 1.5TB and 11 other servers totalling at around 7.2TB.
We use zeeam backup and replication 8.0 to run our backups.
There are two backup jobs set up in veeam, broken down as mentioned above:
11 servers totalling 7.2TB - run daily. (This was set to reverse incremental) but was taking about 12 hours to complete, so I had to change this to 'incremental' which now only takes a couple of hours; the problem is, to complete a full backup weekly, this is looking to take around 42 hours roughly)
And another 11 servers totalling at just 1.4TB currently set to reverse incremental, and is run once a week, and takes around 8 hours.
Currently the repository drive is connected to the backup server via iSCSI, and seems to transfer at a very low speed of about 5 - 10MB/s
Does anyone have any better suggestions. Any particular drive or interface to use that will smash this easily?
I need to be able to backup a total of 8.6TB (and growing) in a 12 hour window.. Is this possible?
I don't want it to be a fine line, I would hope I can have this done in about 6 - 8 hours? Any technology out there that is capable of this?
Look forward to your suggestions
