Data ingest rate example

The following are the ingest rates that are required to meet the example environment performance objectives:

Weekly full

100 TB / (24x 3600) = 1213 MB/sec or 4.16 TB/hr

Daily incremental

10 TB / (10x3600) = 291 MB/sec or 1 TB/hr

Because 1 NIC supports up to 115 MB/s (after a 10% performance deduction for noise or overhead), the following are required for the example environment:

  • 11 NICs for weekly full backups.

  • At least 3 NICs for incremental backups.

You can spread the NICs across the deduplication servers or use faster HBAs on the storage server.
