Backup Exec and Nirvanix - slow transfer speeds

Created: 09 Jul 2012 | 8 comments

Testing out Backup Exec 2012 with Nirvanix cloud storage, and having a problem with bandwidth. The fastest the jobs will run is about 20MB/min (2.7 Megabits/s). If I try to run two jobs at the same time, they will each run at about 10MB/min (or half of the 20MB/min that one job gets). The Nirvanix people say they aren't limiting my transfer rates, our maximum upload speed at the office is 10Mb/s (or 75MB/min). There is no other network activity during the backup job, so I know we have enough bandwidth, it's just not being used. Is there some way I can increase the transfer rates of my backup jobs?

Disabling checkpoint/restart doesn't seem to have any effect. Thanks for the suggestion.

Did you ever find a solution to this issue? I have the exact same problem - transfer to Nirvanix seems to be limited to 20MB/min - very slow.

Never did find a solution. We ended up passing on the product.
