In brief, the technote contains the following information:
The document describes the following best practices:
To make best use of high-speed disk storage, or to manage a pool of SAN Clients for maximum backup speed: dedicate Fibre Transport Media Servers for SAN Client backup only. Do not share media servers for LAN-based backups.
Use multiple data streams for higher data transfer speed from the SAN Client to the Fibre Transport Media Server. Multiple data streams can be combined with multiple HBA ports on the Fibre Transport Media Server. The maximum number of simultaneous connections to the Fibre Transport Media Server is 32.
