Good backup and recovery strategies are key to the health of any organization. Medium- to very-large-scale systems administrators have to protect large amounts of critical data as well as design backup solutions that are scalable and optimized to meet changing conditions. Pro Data Backup and Recovery will cover some of the more common backup applications, such as Symantec NetBackup/BackupExec, EMC NetWorker, and CommVault, but the main discussion will focus on the implementation of 21st century architectures that allow the backup software to be a acommoditya item. The underlying architecture provides the framework for meeting the requirements of data protection for the organization. This book covers new developments in data protection as well as the impact of single-instance storage upon backup infrastructures. It discusses the impact of backup and data replication, the often misapplied B2D and D2D strategies, and atapelessa backup environments. Continuous data protection and remote replication strategies are also addressed as they are integrated within backup strategiesaa very important topic today. Learn backup solution design regardless of specific backup software Design realistic recovery solutions Take into account new data protection standards and the impact of data replication Whether you are using NetBackup, CommVault, or some other backup software, Pro Data Backup and Recovery will give you the information you need to keep your data safe and available. What youall learn Elements of a backup environment and applications of those elements New technologies within the backup technology area and their impact on design Configurations using both Symantec NetBackup and CommVault Simpana, with combinations of backup serves, media servers, and clients, and the impacts of each combination Combinations of both hardware and software configurations that are scalable from small to large environments Designs that address perennial problem areas such as remote offices, very short (less-than-15-minute) recovery point objectives (RPOs), and tape management Reporting requirements that will assist in maintaining and growing an implementation once executed Who this book is for The general audience for this book includes systems engineers, systems administrators, and specialist backup administrators.
