Overview: NetWorker environments support a handful to thousands of clients. NetWorker scales by adding additional NetWorker storage node/SAN storage nodes, and associated disk and tape resources.
The most common challenges in NetWorker environments include:
•Completing backups, staging and cloning with limited time and physical resources
•Contending with large client backups (several million files per client)
•Scaling NetWorker databases, logs, media management and pools to keep up with demand
•Eliminating redundant data backup locations (multiple full/incremental copies of databases, aggressive backup retention policies, etc.)
•Eliminating performance bottlenecks (NetWorker server type, networking, client issues, etc.)
•Lack of capacity planning and reporting disciplines
The authors walk through a detailed analysis of how to address these challenges, complete with planning and sizing considerations and integration planning.
