Parallel Processing and GFS Mediapool

Today I was implementing a tape library with 2 drives. After the library was set up and ready to use I created a GFS Mediapool and a new backup job. In the logs I recognized, that only one drive was used instead of both. After some research I found following explanation:

NOTE: You cannot enable parallel processing for GFS media pools.

In the “classic” Mediapool you have the setting:

There was a post in the Veeam Community from Dima P.:
Parallel processing for GFS media pools feature is planned as a part of further GFS media pool enhancements

Other wishes about GFS Mediapool can be placed here:

So, let’s pray Veeam will implement this as soon as possible 🙂
