I am using Backup exec 12.5 rev. 2213.
Daily - Differential backups, Weekly/monthly - full backup
Backup device: 1/8 IBM autoloader having ult3580-HH4 (LTO 4)
Backup data are transferred into the tape via an isolated network.
Using the “User define selections” for backup. No remote agent is being used.
Full backup runs at 1100mb/mint (approx) speed. But the differential backup runs at 700 - 800 mb/mn speed.
Differential backup does not complete during night & takes more than 17-18 hours to complete. Backup size of diff backup is 900 GB & full backup is 1.8TB.
I cant predict which setup can imrove my backup environment..
We need to improve the backup throughput of differential backup so that backup can complete at night.I donot want to use incremental backups as I personally dnt like it. or
Any suggestion which I can implement on my backup server to improve the backup environment like using B2D or adding one more tape drive..
