VMware Backups That Work—Lessons Learned From VADP Performance Benchmark Testing


Published on

We’ve pushed the backup performance envelope so that you don’t have to! Industry leaders Cisco, NetApp, VMware and Symantec teamed up to develop a best practice framework and performance benchmark based on the vStorage APIs for Data Protection (VADP). The test configuration uses the popular NetApp FlexPod environment. The result that proves that you can easily protect over 4 TB of virtual machine data an hour. Most think that to provide this sort of performance, a mountain of hardware is required. This is not the case. We show you how these performance numbers can be easily obtained with minimal hardware and a small budget. Improving backup performance also creates more reliable backups, shorter backup windows and less impact on the vSphere infrastructure. Whether or not you are using NetBackup, we invite you to attend this hangout where we'll dig deep into VMware VADP and its performance characteristics. We'll share lessons learned from extensive lab benchmarks simulating real production workloads. This will help you design and deploy a backup solution for your VMware vSphere environment that meets your business SLAs.

Bonus exclusively at this hangout: In this hangout, we will provide a sneak preview some of NetBackup for VMware features coming in NetBackup 7.6. We have exciting results to share on how NetBackup is pushing the performance envelope further!
