Impact on network RRS feed

  • Question

  • We're looking into using DPM to backup virtual machines from different sites to our headquarters. What would be the potential network impact of something like this? or how can I calculate this?

  • This is a bit of an open ended question, so it depends. You need at least 0.5Mbit wan circuit. But that won't be enough for anything meaningful.

    It would depend how many VMs you have, size, churn, bandwidth to play with, etc.

    We replicate our data sources to secondary servers, and rate limit DPM traffic to 50mbit - it maxes it out for most of the day.

    What sort of sizes are we talking about here?
