Best strategy to Speed up backup transfer rate between Datto device and Hyper V - Host

Last Modified: 2018-04-06
I have a Hyper) V host with 2 intel Gigabit 2 P  network cards running 3 guest Servers . I need to back them up to a Datto ZFS device on my network.
The problem is that these are both connected to 10/100 switches .
As a result i am only achieving 7.5 mb/s transfer speeds . I have 2 terabytes of data to backup with incremental . As you can imagine these backups take DAYs to complete !!  I know I need to upgrade the channel between these two machines ( Indeed the entire Lan )
What I need to know short term is how  to provide a way that the Datto device can reach the maximum transfer speed the server can produce .
My plan is to attach one of the cards to a very fast switch or even directly to Datto . I am even open to installing an even faster method .
My question is what strategy you are using or would recommend for your own connectivity . ?
I have attached the device manager page from the host so you can see what I have to work with .
Thanks

Pick up a Gigabit switch, _any_ Gigabit switch and plug the vSwitch team ports into that switch along with the Datto ports.

That will greatly improve things.

Make sure to run continuous incrementals for the backups. I think the Datto does that but I'm not sure as we don't work with their products.
