Hyper-V VM backup and restore sessions (single VM restore performance)

Posted by Stefan Folkerts 
Hi all,

I have very little experience with Hyper-V backups up until now but we have
a customer who is interested in this functionality using Spectrum Protect.

My question is, can Hyper-V backups but especially restores utilize
multiple session to and from the server per backup and restore operation?
It’s important because a single stream restore like VMware used to have
before 8.1 will not meet the customers RTO and the documentation states
that the maxrestoresessions parameter is only for VMware, but there might
be something else ging on with Hyper-V restores.

Thanks,
Stefan

Hi Stefan,

Data Protection for Hyper-V does not currently have the same
parallelization that is there for VMware (except for an entire VM in
parallel).

It is under consideration for a future release.
