Archiving plan over 10mb line
Posted on 2015-01-06
I have a 10mb line from our regional office to the HQ.
I wanted to plan an archive design strategy to archive something which is more than 25GB into HQ's archive server.
For all our HQ users (100mb line), we have designed the archive for each department and a mapped the network drive assigned using GPO preference for the each department users to connect using a drive.
Because we have only 10mb link, I am not sure just archiving the files to HQ going to help the network utilization of the users in the regional office.
But before thinking about non office hours, I really want to know if anyone done anything similar to our infrastructure, any practical help would be appreciated.
I think maybe running a Robocopy script or sql job may achieve what I am trying to do, not sure, please advise.
