This section covers the supported VBO configuration maximums. Numbers might vary depending on deployments types and available resources. These values represent what’s currently supported also in light of acceptable performance. The values provided refer to any combination of Online and On-Premises environments that use Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint, OneDrive for Business and Microsoft Teams.
The tables in this section use the number of objects and their variations as a metric for estimations.
- Mail (Primary, Archive, Shared, PublicFolder)
- Sites (SharePoint incl. Subsites, Personal, Teams)
- OneDrive for Business
These maximums are based on Veeam QA testing and the recommended maximums for the specified config.
|Type||Recommended Proxy Config (8C/32GB)||Minimum Proxy Config (4C/8G)|
|Proxies per VBO controller||50||10|
|Objects per proxy 1||20,000||2,000|
|Objects per VBO installation 1||1,000,000||20,000|
|Objects per organization 1||400,000||20,000|
|Users per job||5,000||500|
|Users per proxy||5,000||500|
|Users per VBO installation||250,000||2,500|
|Users per organization||100,000||2,500|
|Size per VBO repository 2 3||Unlimited||Unlimited|
The maximums per component (proxy, repo, installation, organization) must be maintained at the same time (e.g. number per objects and number per users).
|Default JET database instance memory consumption on Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 repository||0.1% of host memory|
|Default JET database engine memory cache(1)||50% of host memory|
|Recommended number of JET databases per backup proxy (with default settings)||250|
|Max number of JET databases per backup proxy (with customised settings) 4||700-750|
The Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 repository consists of multiple folders named after the number of years of retention. For each year folder there is a repository file (.adb) plus a transaction and check log (.jrs and .chk). The total supported size for each .adb file is 64 TB. For example, three-year retention creates three folders with backup files that can grow by up to 64 TB, with one .adb per folder ↩
An automatic rule triggers when repository database files reach 59 TB. At this point, a new repository database file is automatically created in the same storage location. This allows users to bypass the first limit. ↩
Contact Veeam support for advanced RAM memory allocation on Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 proxies. For the default backup proxy, consider allocating at least 15% of the host RAM for Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 Server operations. ↩
