The only way I know of to retain your data is to back it up to tape, or off the server to a remote server. Unless you plan on keeping the current hard disk single and not having it as part of the array, it’s going to get erased when you add it with the [...]

Not sure about configuration changes but if you change Backup command to not save access paths will shorten backup time but will increase restore time due to the fact that access paths will be rebuilt at restore time…..Rick Not necessarily LTO2 specific, but I have those also and have changed to a backup to virtual [...]

If the data restoration company can pull the data, that means they have an AS/400, iSeries, i5, Power System or whatever it’s called now a days. I would imagine that it would take very little effort for them to output the data in a format you can use. If not, then perhaps you should find [...]

As I understand it, here’s how it works. You write the file. The file system is set for say 4k blocks so the OS and the file system break the file into 4k chunks. Those are sent to the HBA, which passes the data through the fibre switch to the SAN array. From there it’s [...]

When deciding your storage solution the TPS isn’t what’s important. The IO load, and the cache hit ratio are what matters. If you are running 10000 TPS and 100% of your data will be in cache, then it doesn’t matter. If you are running 2 TPS and 1% of data will be in cache then [...]
