This is my first time posting on the Symantec website, I have been search around and have not been able to find the answer I am looking for. I am lookig at purchasing new backup servers and would like to know the recommended hardware requirements. I have found the documentation that says the minimum is 1 GB of ram but I was wondering if anyone knew how much of a performance increase would 16GB of ram compared to 32GB or 64GB. Please let me know.
I am running Backup Exec 2014
Apart from dedup, BE does not require much resources. If you have the minimum 1Gb of RAM for BE above the OS requirement then it should be enough. I have not seen any document recommending a lot of RAM for BE
