Hello Connect Friends!!!
Savings of IT costs brings smiles to management and all the relevant stakeholders, but with savings there seems backpressure to admins of maintaining SLA for backups and if that is breached ... makes them worry and sometimes spoils their weekends too.. Quiet sad thing, but is fact in reality.
EV is one of such candidate, which has given tremendous benefits to organization in form of Storage savings, both on front end (Active) and at back end (backup-passive). Also helped in reducing backup window for application, BUT SPARTAN got trapped in its own STRATEGY ....EV itself is eating big backup window and is somewhat inline to other giants in your Datacenter.
I strongly feel , time has come veritas product team need to release new wave of features where we see veritas portfolio is integrated within or something OOB
We need new framework or old is gold sort of to get Faster, Reliable, application aware and consistent backup compliant mechanism in place, This we can expect from IM family
Have piled up few questions which would be submitted to Product team as a part of enhancement request. Requesting you all to spare few mins and respond to poll. Also reply to thread with your feedback.
How Large is your EV environment
How long does your EV backups run
is EV becoming culprit for eating up your backup window
Is SAN transport only option for faster backups?
Are collection of CAB files only answer or is workaround for interim?
