Veritas San Storage Option without FC-AL?
Posted on 2004-10-26
Would it be possible to run veritas' SSO to share resources, and more importantly, have a primary master and secondary slaves so the computers would share resources and be somewhat redundant without putting the tape drives onto a SAN? We have three servers and are trying to automate the backup into one instance (running on three servers) of backup exec's DB. I realize that running over ethernet, if possible, would affect performance without a doubt, but we have plently of headroom, and reliability and dependability is more important than speed (in addition, we have 4 LTO2 and 4 LTO1 drives running to backup about 1.2 TB a night, so not too big of a deal.) I could not find any good technical documentation on this, and translating our scsi tape drives to fiber and running over a SAN may or may not be practical, depending on the performance and compatability of veritas' SSO. Thanks
