backup systems and storage systems
Posted on 2006-06-08
I'm starting a project where by I need to look at my current backup process and storages systems to see if we are getting the most out of them. We do a typical daily (incremental), weekly (full), monthly (full). Our current backups run extreemly slow and are manual, we currently are backing up 600-700Gb of files. My thoughts were redoing the file server, currently it is a server with RAID, I was looking at upgrading the server and rather then having the RAID on the same box to do a NAS solution, and backup could be done via an autoloader, or maybe have a redundant NAS system down in our other office backing up over the network. Only draw back there would be were connected via VPN they have a DSL connection.
Does anyone have thoughts, done something similar, any suggestions?
