Azure Online Recovery Points take too long RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does anyone have any tips for making my Azure Online Recovery Points take less time to complete?  I have some that take on average about 8 hours.  How can I make these shorter?  I imagine I need to create a better scheduling model for my protection groups, but I could use some advice.

    Things to know about our env.:

    • We have a fast site-to-site connection with Azure of 1 Gig.  Actual throughput is around 500 mbit up/down.
    • We have our DPM servers virtualized in Hyper-V.  Each has a minimum of 8 GB of RAM, 4 CPUs, Win 2012 Std.
    • We use Clustered Shared Volumes.
    • Protection Groups like this one (shown below) creates an online recovery point every 24 hours. Some PGs are creating Hyper-V recovery points and others are creating SQL recovery points. I am not sure if that matters.  The below pic is filtered on one job that historically takes a long time.

    Any advice is appreciated.
