The major component of EMC backup and recovery software solutions, NetWorker is a cornerstone element in the backup solutions of large infrastructure customers. In this Knowledge Sharing article, Shareef Bassiouny, Mohamed Sohail, and Giovanni Gobbo illustrate how they optimized their backup processes and leveraged current resources by integrating NetWorker backup management software and the new Data Domain (DD) Boost over Fiber Channel feature to enhance backup system performance.
This article targets backup administrators, support engineers, and stakeholders interested in the importance of the DD Boost over Fiber Channel feature and how to use it to enhance backup success rate. The goal of this article is to help you:
• accelerate backups
• avoid congestion that slows down large critical backups through bandwidth utilization reduction
• minimize workloads on backup hosts (NetWorker Server and Storage nodes)
The authors also illustrate how to better leverage the use of the current infrastructure without investing in a tech refresh for many components in the backup environment.
Thank you Mohamed. As mentioned we are aware of the broken links with archived Knowledge Sharing articles. We are working diligently to resolve this as quickly as possible. We'll post an update as soon as we have more information.
