VMware Backups running slow on tape drives and Disk
Hi, have a problem in running backups to tapes drives, as its going very slow.
We have a VM proxy media server with 6 IBM tape drives zoned to the server.
VM proxy media server configuration is 2008 R2. we have 8gp sfp also installed. This media server is used to take only VMware backups using the vstorage api.
2 copies are taken at a time for each VM servers. The backup take to tape is running slow so we are not able to finish the backup within SLA. I need to know if there is any parameters that we need to set to increase the speed of backup when taking to tape drive. The tape drives are running with the latest IBM tape drive version, still we dont see any increase in performance.
Currently we have only 2 parameter set for the windows VM media server:
