  • Question

  • I need to restore SQL database files to a network folder across the WAN. Is there any way to compress the files prior to transfer? Anything to speed up the transfer and bandwidth usage really..

  • Hi,

    Tpullins, When you enable on-wire-compression at the protection group level, compression is applied during replica creation, synchronization, and consistency check operations. Recovery jobs for those data sources will also use on-wire-compression.

  • Hi tpullins,

    You could use the "On-the-Wire Compression" option => Action pane Optimize performance...

    See technet : http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff399412.aspx

  • The problem is I need compression during the restore, not the backup. The backup is done locally but the files are restored over the WAN, is there an "On-the-wire compression" option for this?

    Hi Tpullins,

    I do not know of a way to do compression on restores with DPM out of the box. A potential option would be to use Riverbed technology to accomplish compression and optimizing the traffic over the WAN. That is however a third party and would come at a cost. I have been in talks with them recently about using Riverbed with DPM. If you are interested at all I could try to find out more information on this for you. Let me know.

    Good info Mike, didn't know the compression is on recovery traffic as well.
