You need to add your "HCL - Scality RING" system as a repository to Veeam Backup & Replication.
This is an Officially Verified disk archive storage that can be used as a Backup Copy target.
Synthetic full backups, granular restores, and vPower features may not provide sufficient performance due to the data storage nature (limited expected random-read speed).
Follow the standard operation of adding an SMB repository as detailed in the following User Guide section:
On the "Step 3. Choose Type of Backup Repository" select the "Shared Folder" option.
On "Step 5. Specify Server or Shared Folder Settings", make sure to select a Gateway Server for the SMB share which is located relatively close to the device, to achieve a better read/write performance and safety during operations between the Gateway and the SMB share.
For recommended performance, on "Step 6. Configure Path and Load Control Settings" in the "Advanced settings" select the following options:
- Align backup file data blocks: No
- Decompress backup data blocks before storing: No
- Use per-VM backup files: Yes (optional)
For recommended job configuration, use the settings below for the Advanced settings:
For source backups: https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backup/vsphere/backup_job_advanced_storage_vm.html?ver=95
For backup copy: https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backup/vsphere/backup_copy_settings_storage.html?ver=95
- Enable In-Line Data Deduplication: Yes
- Compression level: Optimal
- Storage Optimization: Local Target (16TB+ backup files) (Settings for source backups only, it guarantees better performance on this storage due to a bigger block size in backup copy)
