Abstracts - 12th Systems Administration Conference
Using Gigabit Ethernet to Backup Six Terabytes
W. Curtis Preston - Collective Technologies
Imagine having to prove everything you believe at one time. That
is exactly what happened when I was asked to change the design of an
Enterprise Backup System to accommodate the backup and restore needs
of a new, very large system. To meet the challenge, I'd have to use
three brand-new pieces of technology and push my chosen backup
software to its limits. Would I be able to send that much data over
the network to a central location? Would I be forced to change my
design? This paper is the story of the Proof of Concept Test that
answered these questions.
