  2. Veeam Size Estimation Tool (VSE) - Veeam Architects Site - NOTE: RVTools import option.

    • Example 1: 200 VMs consuming 100TB of data, with a 10% growth rate. a three-year scope, an 8-hour backup window, a 5% daily change rate, assuming a 50% data reduction rate, using ReFS, with 21 daily recovery points, would result in ~150TB in a backup repository.

    • Example 2: The exact same scenario as above, only with 14 daily, 4 weekly, 6 monthly, and 3 yearly recovery points (GFS), with backups moved to a Capacity Tier after 21 days, would result in ~150TB in a SOBR Performance Tier and ~200TB in a SOBR Capacity Tier/Archive Tier (S3-compatible).

    • Note on "Change Rate": In 35% of environments the daily change rate is 3% or less. In 50% of environments the change rate is 5% or less. In 70% of environments the change rate is 10% or less. In 90% of environments the change rate is 20% or less.
