Backing up virtual machines, especially in large virtual environments with hundreds or even thousands of VMs, is a time-consuming process that imposes extra load on your VMware, Hyper-V, or AWS infrastructure and its critical components, such as network, hypervisor hosts, and, of course, datastores. If multiple VM backup jobs coincide in time, this can result in VM slowdown and other related issues. However, you can avoid the problem and reduce load on your resources by carefully scheduling the entirety of your VM backup jobs, while taking into account the average job duration, determining the most appropriate backup windows, and automating the scheduling process, whenever possible. The most convenient way to schedule and structure your VM backup jobs is to use the Calendar Dashboard offered by NAKIVO Backup & Replication.
