Challenge

Improving Veeam ONE performance in large infrastructures

NOTE: for version 10 and 11 see the following KB article - https://www.veeam.com/kb4175

Cause

Fine tuning database structure for large infrastructure deployments.

Solution

To improve Veeam ONE SQL database performance, partitioning can be used. Note, that SQL Server Enterprise Edition is required to use partitioning.

NOTE: Do not deploy database partitioning if you use Always On Availability Groups on the SQL server.

Partitioned tables and indexes are created by two scripts. Before running the scripts, it is recommended to create a backup of Veeam ONE database. The scripts can be executed in any order. Before applying them, you will need to specify the following values:

1. Locate %UserName% parameter in the script and specify DB admin (sa or any domain account that has full control permissions to Veeam ONE DB).
2. Locate %Path% parameter and specify directory where database partitions will be created/stored.
3. If Veeam ONE database name is different from default, then change the name of the database (VeeamOne) in both scripts manually
4. Make sure SQL Agents are running before executing the scripts

After successful script execution you should see new functions and partition schemes:
