Backup from on-prem to S3 via Direct Connect


My customer is uing Veritas Netbackup 8.2 and CloudCatalyst to backup to S3 buckets over the internet and they want to leverage existing Direct Connect connection - bandwidth and data transfer rate is not an issue (see below). I see two options, either via Public VIF or an EC2 Proxy instance. What would you recommend?

2x DX = 500Mbps Data Transfer = 200GB/daily

The most common approach is to use a Direct Connect Public VIF. Adding the proxy adds a layer of complexity that is not necessary, and will likely negatively impact the backup speeds.

I have seen Veritas deployments in the past that leverage Public VIF. It is also the preferred method for several vendors, including Veeam and Commvault.
