    It works within backup windows and has got good deduplication.The feature that I have found most useful is its data duplication.
  2. leader badge
    Deduplication and compression are in a good ratio. It supports the HPE Catalyst protocol, which is much faster than NFS and other protocols. We use CommVault and Veeam, and these two solutions support the Catalyst protocol very well and are integrated at high speed. It is faster than normal access.

  4. The solution can be used for all Office 365 applications.The solution is very easy to use and it offers great support.
  5. Both the pricing and the performance are excellent.
  6. One feature that works well for us is that the Cloud Manager is a completely agentless solution. There's a similar dashboard on both the versions for on-premises and the cloud, and with reference to the Cloud Manager, it's a little faster because there's nothing to be installed as such. Being agentless, it doesn't require any agent to be deployed on the targets where the backups are triggered.

What is the best backup for super-duper (100Gbps) fast read and write with hardware encryption?
author avatarVuong Doan

The backup speed depends on:
- number of concurrent I/O streams
- data type
- network
- read/write speed of backup repository
- data encryption enable or not
- terabytes of front end data to be backed up

The question is not clear enough, to sizing a high scalable, high throughput environment. To archive the 100Gbps throughput, you have to list down the mentioned information.

For a very large environment, I strongly recommend using either NetBackup or CommVault.

I would suggest Veeam with the underlying storage being provided by a Pure FlashArray//C.


The FlashArray will provide the throughput you are after (its all-flash), the encryption (FIPS 140-2 certified, NIST compliant), data reduction (Veeams isn't that great) which should provide price parity to spinning disk, provides Immutability which you may also need & is a certified solution with Veeam.


The other storage platform worth looking at is VAST Storage, which has roughly the same features set as the Pure arrays, but uses a scale-out, disaggregated architecture and wins hands down in the throughput race against the Pure's.

There is no such thing as best "anything" let alone backups. There are plenty of enterprise solutions that can handle the load you mentioned plenty are available in the market and it all comes down to your needs.

Hardware encryptions might be much more secure (tougher to hack but still hackable) than software encryptions however they open doors for vendor lock-in and that in certain situations can affect the recoverability of your data.

My advice to you is to focus on looking for a backup solution that can help you guarantee the recoverability of your data at the event of a disaster rather than focus on best backup 100gbps with hardware encryptions.

At the end of the day what's the point of a backup solution if it can do all that you mentioned and fails you at the event of a disaster.

If you can give me more environment details such as what kind of platforms and apps are being utilized I may be able to assist other than that my answers to you are there is no such thing as the best backup for 100gbps with hardware encryption.

We live in a world where everything is software-defined and it's safe to say that that's the way everyone should go.

We use the smallest Cohesity cluster possible with three nodes and have 60GBps of available bandwidth. I assume with more nodes you could get to 100Gbps. They have flash and an unbelievable filesystem. Do you have a use case for 12,500 megabytes per second of backup throughput? I'm having trouble envisioning an admin who would be in charge of a source capable of that coming to a forum like this with your exact question!

I don't think there are backup appliances with the 100Gbps interfaces that exist.


This speed is not needed for the backups, as the network is hardly ever the bottleneck.

Nowadays Cisco and other vendors are coming up with 25 Gig & 100 Gig Ports. On the physical setup of your physical or ESXi(Including backup servers) it should be planned in a way which can connect to this switches to have 100 Gig Pipe. DataDomain, HPE storeonce & Quantum DXI supports you the hardware encryption. Identify the right hardware model which supports the right I/O for your disk backups.This will eliminate your bottleneck after having the 100 Gig N/W. On software you can go for Netbackup, Veeam or Commvault. Each has its own option to reduce the frequent data flow by having client side deduplication

It seems an object storage with inline dedupe could fit but would need to be sized for the performance. Backup targets are typically tuned for the ingest. Is the data dedup-able or compressible? How much data are you looking to backup and in how much time? How much data do you need to restore and in how much time?

author avatarMuathAlhwetat

Your question is not cearly enough for calculate best scenario for your question, Because there are many factors depend on such as :
-Backup for what physical or virtualization environment.
-Data tybe.
-Network speed on all devices.
-Storage tybe flash or tap.
-What is the read/write speed of your disks/tape, AND the bus/controller speed that the disk is attached to?
-How many files and, how much data are you backing up?
-Is your backup application capable of running multiple jobs and sending multiple streams of data simultaneously?

Some potential points for improvement might include:
Upgrading switches and ethernet adapters to Gigabit Ethernet or greater.
Investing in higher performing disk arrays or subsystems to improve read and write speeds.
Investing in LTO-8 tape drives and consider a library, if you are not already using one, so that you can leverage multiplex (multistream) to tape.
