Analyst Report
Today’s company faces increasing demands to deliver Availability for the Modern Data Center™ and become an Always-On Business™. The 2014 Veeam Data Center Availability Survey shows that 82% of CIOs were unable to provide immediate, 24/7 access to IT services. This availability gap is costing organizations more than $2 million a year in lost revenue, lost productivity, lost opportunities and irretrievably lost data—because backups failed to recover.

This infographic is based on the global 2014 Veeam Data Center Availability Survey of 760 CIOs at 1,000+-employee companies, by independent research agency Vanson Bourne.

Author: Luca DellOca, EMEA Evangelist at Veeam

In Veeam® Backup & Replication™ distributed architecture, the repository holds the backup files, and from here a user can retrieve saved data for every restore operation. Because of its importance, a proper design of the repositories is important in all Veeam Backup & Replication projects.

When designing a backup repository for Veeam Backup & Replication, an architect has to evaluate size and performance. Both values need to be carefully calculated so that the overall design will be effective for the entire lifecycle of the underlying components. While calculating the size of a repository is quite easy, estimating the required performance of a backup repository is more complicated.

In this white paper, you will learn how the different backup modes write data, their specific I/O profiles and their impact on storage performances, how you can test a backup repository without involving your production storage, and how to read the results of the tests to better plan for your next backup repository.
