Veeam Backup & Replication Management

In this article

    To manage large environments with multiple Veeam Backup & Replication servers, use the following sizing recommendations.

    Veeam Service Provider Console

    For Veeam Service Provider Console, use a server that meets the following requirements:

    Protected VMs*

    < 1 000

    < 10 000

    < 50 000

    < 80 000

    < 10 0000

    CPU

    2 vCPUs

    4 vCPUs

    6 vCPUs

    8 vCPUs

    10 vCPUs

    Memory

    4 GB

    6 GB

    10 GB

    12 GB

    15 GB

    Minimum bandwidth

    1 Mbit/sec

    2 Mbit/sec

    4 Mbit/sec

    9 Mbit/sec

    12 Mbit/sec

    * Under the condition that a protected VM has 2 virtual disks and is included in 2 daily data protection jobs: one targeted to a local backup repository, one targeted to cloud. Managed Veeam Backup & Replication server protects 100 VMs.

    Microsoft SQL Server

    Veeam Service Provider Console ships with the Microsoft SQL Server Express edition. The Express edition can be used for POC, trial and small-scale environments on a temporary basis. It is not recommended to use the Microsoft SQL Server Express edition in case you have more than 10 000 VMs protected by managed Veeam Backup & Replication servers.

    For production deployments, use Microsoft SQL Server Standard and higher. Microsoft SQL Server that hosts the Veeam Service Provider Console database must meet the following requirements:

    Protected VMs1

    < 1 000

    < 10 000

    < 50 000

    < 80 000

    < 10 0000

    1. Under the condition that a protected VM has 2 virtual disks and is included in 2 daily data protection jobs: one targeted to a local backup repository, one targeted to cloud. Managed Veeam Backup & Replication server protects 100 VMs.
    2. It is recommended to store Temp DB data on SSD.
    3. With default retention settings (3 months).
    4. Not recommended for production deployments.

     

    I want to report a typo

    There is a misspelling right here:

     

    I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
