The Veeam Size Estimator (VSE) is a tool that is designed and maintained by the EMEA Veeam Solutions Architects; however, it is not an official Veeam tool. Please, ensure that you double check your workings against you own calculations or discuss the design with a Veeam SE or SA.
The VSE is available at https://vse.veeambp.com and provides the following:
- Estimated Storage Capacity requirements
- Estimated Compute requirements for:
- VBR server
- Cloud Tier capacity and transaction estimations
- Both copy and move operations
The tools also allows for the export of the resulting estimation to Excel or PDF.
NOTE: The VSE runs completely in the browser, no data is transmitted other than standard Google analytics.
All calculations that the VSE uses are shown in the Veeam Best Practice guide; the VSE provides a convenient method of applying the calculations.
