Performance Tier

Performance tier of a scale-out backup repository is the level used for fast access to the data.

The performance tier of a scale-out backup repository can comprise one or more performance extents. A performance extent is a backup repository or an object storage repository added to the scale-out backup repository. The list of the performance extents is displayed at the Add Performance Extents step of the New Scale-out Backup Repository wizard. You can use the performance tier with almost all types of jobs and tasks that Veeam Backup & Replication runs. For a list of unsupported scenarios, see Limitations for Performance Tier.

After you add a backup repository or an object storage repository to the scale-out backup repository, they no longer exist as individual backup repositories.

When a backup repository or an object storage repository is added as a performance extent, some of its original settings are kept, and some are not. The following settings are kept, or inherited:

  • Number of tasks that can be performed simultaneously
  • Read and write data rate limit
  • Data decompression settings
  • Block alignment settings
  • Connection mode (using gateway server or direct)
  • Object storage consumption (for object storage repositories)

The following settings are not inherited:

  • Rotated drive settings. Rotated drive settings are ignored and cannot be configured at the level of the scale-out backup repository.
  • Per-machine backup file settings. Per-machine settings can be configured at the level of the scale-out backup repository.

Supported Types of Repositories

You can use the following types of repositories as performance extents:
