Re: Avamar "What if" backup
Thanks for your answer,
Yes, I have used this tool and it is good for checking change rates on individual data sets, however the server I am looking at backing up to the grid is a new application server to replace an old application server and *should* therefore de-dupe against the original server's backups very well.
The pre-sales tool doesn't (as far as i'm aware,) match any data to your grid to see how well it will de-dupe on the "global" scale.
I was effectively looking to run a full backup on a new server, but not actually save the backup data to the grid.
