This whitepaper is intended for a technical audience that understands how Veeam® Backup & Replication™ works. Additional knowledge about Cisco® UCS® and Cisco Unified Fabric is useful but not required.
Veeam Backup & Replication provides an architecture where different components can be scaled out simply by adding additional components. To maximize backup and restore performance for the entire system, the Veeam Proxy and Repository roles need to be balanced. Doing so allows Veeam to provide availability for the data, ensuring the lowest recovery time and point objectives (RTPO™). A performance-optimized architecture is key to reach that goal. This whitepaper will rely on the following simplified model of a modern data center.
