Which device do you recommend to use for traffic shaping & bandwidth optimization between P2P links?

Hi community,

We have a Disaster Recovery (DR) site. We would like to improve our traffic shaping and optimize the bandwidth for a smooth operation between the user-side and the DR one. 

Which device (or a technique) can help?

 Thank you for the help.

Hello @Kaushlendra Singh

I would suggest SD-WAN as the best suitable technology for shaping your traffic between these 2 sites. 

And if you don't want to invest, you can utilize your current firewall to create IPSec VPN for the backup line, and the primary can be P2P with increased bandwidth. For that, P2P needs to be terminated on your firewall.

I once used Commvault. It can cross-backup and restore on a variety of platforms including Azure.

It depends on your requirements. Mostly, a backup solution covers the cloud as well (e.g., products like Veritas NetBackup you can integrate with the cloud).  Pros:  -No need to manage infra. You just need to work on an application. -Easy installation. Cons:  -All your data would be in your own DC and  -You can manage it as per your company policy

There are advantages and disadvantages to both on-prem and cloud backup solutions. It depends on where the data is stored to start with, the amount of data, and the type of data. There are also costs involved as on prem would have a higher cost up front for the infrastructure but if your data is in a local data center would be more accessible for backups and restores. While cloud is inexpensive for the storage there are normally tiers and different costs based upon hot, cool, and cold storage.  And depending on where the data is stored in the cloud there are different costs associated with restores. You might need a hybrid model where you do some backup/restores on-prem and some in the cloud.   There is no one solution that fits the bill for all companies so you have to weigh all the options that best fit your needs. Just remember that the data is important and that many times cloud providers only backup their infrastructure and not your data that resides in their cloud. You have to assign a risk factor if you can afford to lose some data that might be hosted.  A good example of this would be Microsoft 365. Microsoft guarantees the system, but if someone "accidentally" does a permanent delete on their inbox, the data would be gone unless you had a 3rd party solution to backup that data.
