At the Bandwidth step of the wizard, you can specify task and bandwidth limitations for Veeam Backup & Replication jobs that write data to cloud repositories and cloud hosts. Limiting bandwidth and parallel task processing for departments helps avoid overload of cloud gateways, backup proxies, backup repositories and network equipment on the service provider side. To learn more, see Data Encryption and Throttling.
To configure bandwidth settings:
- In the Max concurrent tasks field, specify the maximum number of concurrent tasks for the department. If this value is exceeded, Veeam Backup & Replication will not start a new task until one of current tasks finishes.
- To limit the data traffic coming from the department side to the provider side, select the Limit incoming network traffic to check box. With this option enabled, you can specify the maximum speed for transferring department data to the provider side.
