  • Hi,

    I would say it depends completely on your environment, in general it is a good idea to isolate your network traffic for backups to a dedicated network.

    The main reason you would configure a dedicated backup network is to avoid slowing down the production network.

    Using a dedicated backup network may also improve the backup speeds.

    While there is no official recommendation to do this, it is still highly suggested.

    Best regards,
