[FULL DEMO TOUR OF AUTOMATIC CLIENT UPDATE] Dave High, Lead Principle Technical Education Consultant
I see some nice stuff for tracking volume of data.
What about data throughput?
I am all about MB/Sec of data writing to my storage, and then again to physical tape - please tell me you have improved the current OpsCenter standard of "we get yesterdays tape data at 01:00 each day"
I am please to see the promise of the auto client upgrade - except i already have that on my unix environment running update_clients, nice that the windows guys can have that.
Nice to see the promise of features that are release independent.
Thanks for the XFS support for RHEL VM, been waiting for that.
Have to echo Marianne, was told XFS coming last year!, then spring, then end of July, then end of August, now September 17 - I have to download that and test, I will be getting access XFS for my production environment in November?
Is there an on premises centralized reporting solution for us where cloud is a bad word ? Reading this as Smart Meter is a online/cloud solution.
Throughput to tape, per hour for todays work would be a good start.
Today, I get all 0.
A dash board graphic that shows data backed up - or a heat map of throughput per hour to tape for today.
Are there ever going to be any improvements made to OpsCenter or is it going to continue to just be left alone and fail to be of any real use?
It is amazing that Veritas is developing new cloud technology support. But our customers are waiting for a functional RAC Oracle solution, for the ability to back up archive logs in PostgreSQL, the ability to backup throught multiple VLANs (no route VLAN) into one msdp pool, the ability to share msdp by multiple media servers, for Instant recovery and support GRT applications in Hyper-V, XEN / KVM, Oracle VM, for the ability backup VM in cloud -> replication to private Vmware cloud and restore this (conversion of restore between Amazon, Azzure and Vmware, Hyper-V).
Looking for clarification on this feature...
Does this mean that you can A) stand up a VM via Instant Access and then B) somewhere during that process you will get a link that you can then give to the application/server owner for them to copy what they need over to their server having the issue?
If so how is the cleanup of that Instant Access VM done and who initiates it?
Seems pretty typical of Veritas these days...nobody watches these forums at all and no help for customers. Seems like Netbackup just isnt important to them anymore.
