Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Are the subnets in the same physical location or are they on a WAN? If they’re on a WAN, then what’s your link speed between sites and approx how much data do you have in each site?

    So long as the backup host can reach the backup targets -- that is the subnets are routable, then this should not pose an issue. Like our friend ESPETTIT suggests, check and watch your WAN throughput. I assume that the backup solution that you intend to use has the capacity to backup all of the target servers.

    Something that I forgot to point out is if you consolidate the backups, you must also think through how doing so will impact your backup window. Backing up a lot of data, especially across a WAN will take time.
