I am in the process of trying to work out the benefits of setting up a VLAN to allow our virtual machines to backup across it as opposed to having our NAS drive directly attached to our physical server.
We are a small company with only a handful of users. We have a physical server that runs two virtual servers with a NAS server so we can perform backups of our data to it. There is low traffic across our network and we will run the backup out of hours using Backup Exec 2014.
I want to try and find out if there is any particular reason to go ahead and create a dedicated VLAN and run the backups across it as opposed to just directly connecting the storage device to our internal network?
Any advice would be very helpful, thanking you in advance.
