Riverbed on Veeam achieves 10Mbps throughput on a 2Mbps link

I love getting reports from our customers on the performance they are achieving with their Riverbed deployment.  In this case, the application is Veeam, which is a popular suite of backup and replication tools.  The environment is a 2Mbps link between two datacenters and Veeam replicating data from datacenter to the other.  A Riverbed Steelhead appliance was placed at each datacenter and nothing special had to be configured on the Steelhead.  Veeam was configured using the following settings.




Below are the throughput performance results.  Remember that this is on a 2Mbps link!

It is also worth noting that the traffic replicated by Veeam was also reduced 83% by Riverbed's Steelhead appliances.
