Does the amount of time for this backup seem logical?
I have Backup Exec 2012 SP2 installed on a Windows Server 2003 R2 x64 machine. I then have a remote server running Windows Server 2012 Standard with a RAWS installed. I can back up this remote server (about 270 GB) accross the network to an LTO-3 tape in about 4 hours.
On this remote server I am running 10k rpm SAS drives. I have a 6 disk RAID 5 configuration that stores all of my data. I recently installed 2 more 1.2 TB hard drives in a RAID 0 configuration to use for Disk Backup. However, when I backup to the disk, it is taking 9+ hours to backup the same 270 GB.
I'm just wondering: Does this seem normal? I was thinking that it would be much quicker since it is not transfering data across the network. I am starting the job at 11 PM when nobody is on the network.
