EMC Avamar laptop backup
Posted on 2014-09-18
We currently have EMC Avamar for backup of servers. We want to start using it for laptop and desktop backups. What is the best way to set this up? I have some questions and would like your recommendations and challenges.
Full backup? - Since it is using deduplication it should be pretty efficient and not backup every users OS since it already has a copy to work off of.
Off-site backup? How does that work?
Backup timing? I don't think there is continuous backup... how do we set that up. Once a day? What if the user misses that time? Will it start next time they are connected? What if the laptop user is never connected at that time?
Should we backup the entire laptop or only the users profile? Looks like if we want to backup only the users profile we have to manually select that with every laptop. We have over 200 laptops to backup.
