Is there any way to increase the speed of a Replicated snapshot?


#1

Is there any way to increase the speed of a Replicated snapshot? The snapshot process is very slow. This is ok with a couple of GB, but when there is 100+GB the snapshot process takes 10+ hours. The restore process is also quite slow and takes almost as long as a snapshot to restore. This can push maintenance windows to 20+ hours.
Thanks,

For better performance we recommend configuring SFTP backed. We generally don’t recommend storing backup data on local host.
