Veeam FastSCP works

On my last post you saw that I found a tool that promises miracles when transferring VMDK files over DATASTOREs.

So, I did my own test to guarantee that there are performance improvements using Veeam FastSCP over regular SCP copies.

I took a single 20gb VMDK files with just 10gb of this file was in use, the rest was blank blocks.

As you can see on the chart comparison bellow, SCP took 27 minutes to copy the file when Veeam FastSCP took just 13 minutes.

Well… I would say it works and I can add that the bigger your file is and as much blank blocks you have the bigger you be the differences between then.

Do your own test and let me know the results… to me it worth’s a try!!!

See you
