Maximize backup performance with Veeam Backup & Replication and NetApp EF- and E-Series storage

Andreas Neufert, Solutions Architect Central EMEA, Veeam Software

Published: November, 2014

A lab performance test of the Availability for the Modern Data CenterTM program at NetApp® Labs Munich shows backup speed does not serve as a limiting factor for the modern data center when customers use Veeam® Backup & ReplicationTM in combination with NetApp EF- or E-Series storage.

The test shows that a single server running Veeam Backup & Replication was able to process 1400MB/s in direct SAN mode while processing deduplication and compression. Also, backup performance can scale nearly linear to the point where the source and target storage systems serve as the bottleneck by adding additional Veeam proxy/repository servers.

Read about the best value and performance results executed using a NetApp EF- storage arrays.
