For the Veeam ONE database, use a server that meets the following requirements:
In accordance with compute requirements to Veeam ONE Server.
Important! These requirements assume that the Veeam ONE database is hosted on a dedicated Microsoft SQL Server. If the SQL Server is shared by several applications, compute requirements will be higher. To calculate the amount of resources required by other applications, see application-specific sizing recommendations for Microsoft SQL Server.
Install the OS and Microsoft SQL Server on different drives.
OS Drive: 50 GB
Application drive: Use the Veeam ONE Database Calculator to size application data. With partitioning scripts provided at Step 5 of the document, you will have the following distribution of the Veeam ONE database size:
Size the following tables in accordance with Microsoft SQL Server recommendations:
Other: SSD is recommended for Microsoft SQL Server.
Windows Server 2012 R2 or 2016
Microsoft SQL Server
If you use a virtualized Microsoft SQL Server, this server must run on a separate LUN/datastore from Veeam ONE Server.
To calculate an expected size of the Veeam ONE database, use the Veeam ONE Database Calculator. The calculator helps estimate disk space required to store VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V and Veeam Backup & Replication data.
