I'm looking at upgrading my tape library. My current one is AIT5 and I want to go to LTO4 to take advantage of Encryption. I was also hoping to reduce the number of drives since the LTO is much faster and holds more. What kind of performace can expect from Remote NDMP. I have a 10GbE pipe between the Filer and the Media Server.
Using direct fibre as a reference and everything being the same how much slower would Remote NDMP be?
My Media Server is Win2003 64bit Server R2, 3Ghz Quad Core, 4GB RAM, NBU 6.5.
