Veeam Top 15 Easy Performance Optimizations

A couple of week ago I participated in the APAC leg of the Top 15 Easy Performance Optimization with Rasmus Haslund looking at how to make Veeam Backup & Replication work more effectively and unleash the full power of the the Veeam platform by working through 15 performance tips that sometimes can be overlooked if left unchecked or not configured out of the box. These included how to use all your CPU power, how to schedule jobs in the right way, taking advantage of scale out backup repositories and other performance optimizations customers can achieve as they deploy new environments or upgrade their existing ones.

At Zettagrid we have been using Veeam as the backup product of choice since going live in 2010 and in that time have been working with Veeam to offer our Image Archive Service which back’s up 1000’s of VMs each day. To keep the backup window in check most of the performance optimizations mentioned in the webinar have been implemented and, together with Rasmus I go through some examples of the impact on individual jobs and the overall efficiencies that allow Veeam to scale as Zettagrid has grown.

Like any software, what you get out of the box isn’t always going to offer you optimal performance…Veeam Backup & Replication does work great out of the box, but where is really shines is when you look just under the covers and give it a few tweaks along the way.

There isn’t any doubt that it can scale!
