Any IT professional I talk to are always hungry for best practices and documented performance benchmarks. I know, I know….performance benchmarks are good – as long as they detail the test environment – but at the end of the day….it isn’t until you run it in your environment that you really see how it will work (or more likely, find out how slow your network is). That reality aside…. the good news is that NetBackup and Cisco have teamed up to provide some detailed best practices and benchmark metrics for protecting VMware that you can take to the bank. Using NetBackup’s native integration for VMware and built-in VM-optimized deduplication, VMware vStorage API for Data Protection, and Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) – the best of all three worlds have been brought together to provide some really awesome benefits including:

  • The ability to protect over 3,000 VMs on a single backup host
  • Effective media server throughput of 600 MB/s
  • Dedupe rates of 98% +

If you are planning to attend VMworld (Aug 30-Sept 2 in San Francisco) check out session # BC8283 (NetBackup and Cisco – Benchmarked Best Practices), or, if you can’t attend and are still interested in finding out more – sign up for this Webcast (which is a repeat of the VMworld break-out). If you can’t make the exact date/time – sign up anyway and watch the recording later. Oh – and stay tuned – a complementary whitepaper (which will be chock full of all the testing details) will be coming to a website near you.
