Can anyone give me some advice on the best backup strategy for my scenario?
- I have 8 Windows 10 workstations located in several different countries.
- Each workstation has a data set that I need to backup in located c:\backup - it contains regular Office files, pictures, and some 30-40GB VMs.
- A lot of this data (especially the VM’s) is very similar and I expect well suited to a deduplicated backup system.
- Some of the workstations have fast 1GB net links, others have very slow ADSL links
- I’d like to configure Duplicacy to backup all of these machines to Wasabi.
My questions are:
- In order to benefit from the de-duplication can I backup all of these machines to the same storage pool?
- Can they backup simultaneously?
- Is this a sane idea?
- Have I fundamentally misunderstood the workings of Dupicacy?
My goal is use as little backup space as possible, and then seed the workstations with the fast links first so that most of the data is already in the storage pool, making the slower linked workstations more efficient for backups as the deduped data is already in the pool.
