i have EMC Networker and DataDomain 2200
i need to deploy offsite Tape solution ( emc doesn't support tape they support VTL only ) and i need physical Tape to move it after every backup to another site.
now i need tape drive compatible with ecm networker to create backup to this tape every month or year
backup capacity about 10 TB (VMs , Exchange DB , Active Directory Status )
Solved! Go to Solution.
I don't undestand when you say that EMC "doesn't support tape". Physical tape always has been supported with emc networker.
emc doesn't provide physical tape to buy it ,, i can buy only VTL and i need tape device physical not virtual
thank you alot every one for reply , but can you suggest model to use in my case
Remember that EMC is now part of Dell..and DellEMC sells libraries...
Buy LTO7 tape library... how many drives? it depends on how much money you are supposed to spend, TB to backup, and your backup window.
If you are looking at a tape that can hold 10 TB, then one possible choice could be an LTO-7 media. This can hold 6 TB native (uncompressed) and up to 16 TB compressed (using 2:1 ratio). Please look at the following for more information on LTO technology: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linear_Tape-Open
Another article has info that compares various tape technologies: http://www.lascon.co.uk/Tape-drive-comparisons.php
Please discuss with your EMC sales rep, who may be able to discuss and provide you with additional information on your tape storage needs.
If you do not like tapes you must not necessarily use them. Just clone the backups to a disk device (AFTD) and move it to the remote site.
Here are the latest hardware and software compatibility guides. The hardware compatibility guide will show you what tape drive and jukebox are compatible with NetWorker.
EMC NetWorker Hardware Compatibility Guide
EMC NetWorker Software Compatibility Guide
For NetWorker 8.1 and later: http://compatibilityguide.emc.com:8080/CompGuideApp/
NetWorker continues to perform qualifications on new tape drives to ensure that it can work with the latest tape drives.
And although not all jukeboxes (tape libraries or autochangers) are listed, it is usually considered that NetWorker will support any jukebox that the operating system will support.
Finally, with very few exceptions, NetWorker treats physical and virtual tape libraries in the same manner.
Hope this helps.
