Configuring EMC DataDomain Boost FC with Veeam B&R

The idea beside this blog post comes up after a meeting with a customer, who configured a physical Veeam proxy for writing VMs backups on a EMC DataDomain system.

I was checking the proxy configuration when I noticed that the customer presented 32 DD Boost FC devices to the proxy. So, I asked why this number. The answer was: “because 32 looks like a good number”.

Part2 – Installation
Part3 – Configuration
