Multiple tape restore and keyword search.

Here's the situation. We need to restore up to 26 DLT tapes containing 400GB data each, then search every document and file (including looking inside Word/Excel) for particular Keywords. We have 3 servers and 3 tape drives available for this process, which must be done ASAP. We were thinking of having the servers do restores, moving the data off to 3 workstations, then searching the files so the restores can run uninterrupted on the servers.

Has anyone done something like this before? Open to ideas/input. Thanks.

Wouldn´t it be easier to know on wichs "probable tapes" the files would be ??

Why do the Restore of them all ?

No, that's not acceptable. We need to locate all documents containing the 'keywords' between Date X and Date Y, which means those 26 tapes.

I was just asking !

I haven't done anything like what you're doing, but if I had to, I would do the same way you're doing . . .

I'd place all 3 servers Restoring to Workstations, that, are less loaded than the servers, and perform the search from there.

Best Regards !

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

This can be closed/deleted. We restored and searched each tape individually. The search tool we used is called CoolFind.
