File attached helps you to calculate enterprise netbackup architecture design.

It helps in designing infrastucture for backup such as

1. Master server configurations

2. Number of media servers and configurations

3. Number of Tape drives required

4. Tape library configurations required

5. FC and ethernet bandwidth need for backups to complete in time window, etc.

*Not applicable for SMB as the decimals are not considered.

Here is the updated one with Ethernet and FC info.

Its optional to choose 10G ports to reduce the number of bundled 1G ports.

you can devide number of 1G ports by 10 and arrive at required 10G ports and recidue is number of 1G ports.

Hope this completes it.  smiley

SLP is a storage configuration method to easy managing of storage copies after sizing and deploying your backup systems.
Storage lifecycle policy makes life easy managing multiple copies for backups, snapshots, duplication and replication including Auto Image Replication.

VTL is an option for disk based backups where disks are considered as virtual tapes and virtual drives which improves the read writes and reduces latency and tape drive overheads.

Hi there, VTL simulate e Tape Library, there is no difference,

I had configured a DataDomain w/ VTL, 

Remember that your data will be sent to DISK, so try reading about Open Storage (OST)
