Performance hit not using IBM v7000 hardware vss writer versus software writer? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Ok,

    So we have had some issues with IBM VSS as of late and I started wondering how much of a performance hit will I take if I bypass the IBM vss writer and use the MS software writer? I read that DPM 2012 SP1 introduced a 900% increase in performance and parallel backup.

    1 DPM server running SP1 UR2
