Last year, together with the release of the new Veeam Cloud Connect, I developed and published its Reference Architecture. The paper had a great success with 1500 people downloading it. Because of the new additions in Veeam Backup & Replication v8 Update 2, it was time to upgrade the document.
The new version is now available for download here, and it has new sections about some areas:
– the new maximum size for a single cloud repository has been increased to 2 PB now
– a more in-depth section about the WAN acceleration, its sizing and some best practices to use it
– the biggest new part, about the new Read Cache added in Veeam Backup & Replication v8 Update 2. The new cache will greatly improve backup performances, but it requires some different design choices for the Veeam repository servers. In the paper you will learn how the cache works, what requirements has, and how to properly size a Veeam repository to use it at best.
Enjoy the new paper.
