How to Increase VM Backup Speed
Backup speed becomes a serious issue when your business operates 24/7 with hundreds of virtual machines up and running. The problem becomes all the more serious when your infrastructure comprises upwards of a thousand VMs. As you scale out, boosting your VM backup speed becomes a vital element in maintaining your virtual infrastructure’s resilience
There are many potential factors that could be slowing down your backup processes. Your virtual environment may suffer from insufficient network bandwidth; this could create bottlenecks between the source data storage, the backup software, and/or the destination data storage. The write speed of your target storage could also be limited. These issues relate mostly to resource availability vs. cost, and cannot be easily improved without investment.
