Does anyone know the supported Data Transfer Rate supported by Backup Exec 2012, some benchmarks to refer on standard,
Knowing that there are numerous factors involved in this throughput standards,all I m looking is given the good Hardware like Servers, Switches and NAS, what can be expected as a convincing speed.
Local To Disk
Local To Tape
Network to Disk
Network to Tape
Yes, I understand, but such a product used so widely, hasn't there been any official tested speeds at Symantec's Labs.
I hope they will have an engineering team, who might have tested all these before the release.
Here are some figures of a small heterogenous system with low budget devices...
All backup targets are virtual servers (12 pcs.) in vmware (also BE server is virtual server which is not a preferable solution). There are 13 different jobs, some of them are running simultaneously, most of them one after each other. Tape related jobs (3 psc.) are using verification (~831G), backups to disk storages (10 pcs) are not using verification (~441G).
MBytes/min figures are from job reports of BE2014. It may be that BE2014 is a little faster than BE2010 in this setup, but I can not say that for sure, backup speeds vary from day to day quite alot.
NOTE! I do not take any responsibility of possible conclusions you may do based on these numbers :)
