Volume's on a SAN to accommodate for Veeam Replication


I have a 24TB SAN which I'm setting up for veeam replication. I have quite a few servers I want to setup for replication. Is it worth have multiple volumes or 1 big volume to hold the replicated VMDK files.

We prefer the multiple volumes, and NOT "All the eggs in one single basket" just in case of corruption or loss, or deletion!

Thanks for the reply Andrew. how would you split a 24tb SAN? it's dependant on the VM sizes correct? Would you put multiple vmdks on 1 data store?

Is this a SAN, e.g. LUNs

Some LUNs will need to be larger than others, to accommodate size of VMDKs and VMs.

We would organise based on service and servers category.

Yes LUNs

That makes a lot of sense. Thanks
