Honestly, I’m as excited about these “under the hood” improvements just about as much as the everything else combined. It seemed too good to be true. We are seeing almost unbelievable improvements on large VMs. The scale [v7 provides] that we’re seeing in testing is pretty amazing. In my opinion [parallel processing] may very well be the biggest feature of this release. Very, very impressed with [CPU usage reduction] on backup proxy servers. VMs with multiple disks process a few TIMES faster, so snapshots don’t grow large and snapshot commit is no longer a pain in the … !
Tom Sightler Solutions Architect Veeam Software By far, the most impressive part of the testing was the performance of the backup engine. The partner had installed on a fairly old 4 core physical server that did not have direct SAN access, so backups were over network mode via 2 bonded 1GbE links. v6 did about 20 MB/s with CPU load around ~40% in this lab. v7 absolutely blew thru the backups, running at an average transfer rate of 200MB/s while task manager showed only ~5% CPU usage. It seemed too good to be true. We were effectively storage bottlenecked with NBD mode.
