Adding Backup Proxies

In this article

    Backup proxies perform various backup tasks, such as retrieving data from the production storage, compressing, deduplicating, encrypting, sending data to backup repositories and other backup proxies. In large deployments, the default number of backup proxies deployed in the Mine with Veeam cluster may not be enough to process data of the protected workloads.

    To optimize backup performance and to avoid high traffic load on the deployed proxies, you can do the following:

    • Deploy an additional Mine with Veeam cluster and connect the existing backup server to the new cluster. Backup proxies deployed in this cluster will be automatically added to the backup infrastructure.
    • Deploy a physical server or a virtual machine outside the Mine with Veeam cluster, add it to the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure and assign the role of a proxy to it. In Veeam Backup & Replication, you can add the following types of proxies:
    • File share backup proxies. For more information, see the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide, section NAS Backup Support.
    • VMware backup proxies. For more information, see the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide, section Adding VMware Backup Proxies.
    • VMware CDP backup proxies. For more information, see the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide, section Adding VMware CDP Proxies.
