5220 Appliance Topology - Help
Hi. Need help with appliance configuration.
1 NBU Domain, 1 NBU Master 7.1 (Datacentre 1)
1 x physical Master
3 x 32Tb 5220
Load balanced MSDP of all appliances.
Duplication target for Datacentre 2 and remote sites.
Manage tape library for long retention.
2 x 32Tb 5220
Load balanced MSDP of both appliances.
Duplication of images to Datacentre 1 for tape out.
Remote sites x 6
1 x 4Tb 5220
Local de-dupe of clients, then duplicate images back to Datacentre 1 for tape out.
The questions I have are;
Can the three appliances in Datacentre 1 be aggregated into one storage pool (96Tb) and be load balanced and share de-dupe metadata?
Can the two appliances at Datacentre 2 be aggregated into one storage pool (64Tb) and be load balanced and share de-dupe metadata?
Will the remote site appliances have their own local de-dupe catalogue and not be globally de-duping with DC1 & DC2?
Suppose the remaing question would be (if yes, yes, yes) how can I implement this?
Thanks in advance.
