Because SmartCLOUDTM EPS is an offsite backup solution, the backup speed depends on the Internet or VPN bandwidth at the customer’s office. You can roughly estimate the backup time based on the data amount and bandwidth, for example:
Backup 300GB data through 100Mbps Internet will take:
300 GB x 8 = 2400 Gb = 2400000 Mb
2400000 Mb / 100 Mbps = 24000 seconds = 6.67 hours
