One more enhancement with Veeam Backup & Replication v7. Built-in WAN Acceleration is the newest enhancement that they’ve announced part of count down and this is part of “Disruptive innovations” . There are another 50+ enhancements in Veeam Backup & Replication v7. Build-in WAN acceleration includes global caching, variable length dedupe, traffic compression, TCP/IP optimizations (multi-threading, provisions for high latency links) and resume on disconnect.
As per the blog post here on Veeam blog. You can install WAN accelerators on existing proxies and repositories. Just install a WAN accelerator component at the source site and at the target site, and you’re ready to go. We estimate that WAN-accelerated backup transfers will be up to 50x faster than a traditional file copy across the WAN. Think about how much increasing your WAN connection bandwidth 50x would cost you! With v7 you don’t have to – it’s included with Veeam Backup & Replication!
