Difference Between Typical and Advanced Scalability Modes


Understanding the difference between Typical and Advanced scalability modes.


Depending on the size of the managed virtual environment, you can choose of the following Veeam ONE installation types:
  • Typical — this type of installation is recommended for small to medium environments, with up to 100 hosts and 1500 VMs
  • Advanced Scalability — this type of installation is recommended for large environments with more than 100 hosts and 1500 VMs
Installation type is defined by a set of configuration parameters that determine Veeam ONE behavior in a number of areas, such as data collection and other. Choosing the appropriate installation type allows you to optimize monitoring and reporting performance and improve user experience in Veeam ONE.


To switch between the modes, on Veeam One server run "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Veeam\Veeam ONE Settings\VeeamOneSettings.exe" > Deployment Configuration > Save > Restart Veeam One Monitor and Veeam One Reporter services.

NOTE that the previously collected data will not be revisited.
