we have to backup a VM which is around 7 TB big and we are doing the backup via SAN directly to tape. We are using a VMware policy without intelligent policy.
Is there an option to use multiple data streams / tape drives for one backup job?
I have two 21TB VMs with sybase IQ in them.
My knowledge is that there is no option to use multistreaming with VM backups. These VMs have a lot of VMDK files and would be nice if there was an option to back them up in parallel.
I dont think so. Maybe there is some limitation also on VMware side currently. I will ask Product Manager if this feature is not on NetBackup roadmap.
according to my PM, there are currently no plans for this feature .
