  • The performance of the VMware and Hyper-V backups depends on the RAM & CPU availability of the BDR Backup Server.

Normally, 4 GB RAM will be utilized to run the BDR Backup Server and database services.

  • If only one backup job is active, then it will use the remaining memory (approx. 4 GB RAM).
  • If two concurrent backups are active, then each backup job will use approx. 2 GB RAM.

The memory utilization will be divided based on active concurrent backup jobs. We recommend allocating approximately 500 MB RAM for each active backup job. If you want to run 8 concurrent backup jobs in your BDR Backup Server, you should assign 8 GB RAM (4 GB for BDR Backup Server and 4 GB to process the backup jobs).

To avoid significant CPU usage during active backup progress, BDR Backup Server machine should be assigned with enough vCPUs or cores. Normally, one vCPU or core is enough to handle 8 concurrent backup jobs activity (such as read/write).

Information Note:

The above-mentioned memory and CPU utilization are the same for the BDR Backup Server (Windows & Linux) deployed in physical and virtual environments.
