Backup Exec 2012 - Hardware sizing
Hope someone can help me on this.
I plan to deploy Dell R720xd
1x Intel E5-2630 (2.3 Ghz, 6C/12T)
2x 300GB 10K sas
12x 3 TB NL SAS
16 GB RAM
Server will function as a VMS (Axis Camera Station - 25 Cameras) server.
I also plan to install backup exec 2012 on this server to backup my video files to tape (LTO5)
Each backup will be around 2.8 TB.
1 Would it be ok if I used the setup above ? (Combining my VMS and Media Server at the same time)?
I planned it this way to avoid network congestion when I execute a backup...
2. Can anyone recommend a backup hardware specs to backup 3 TB worth of data weekly?
3. Would 16 GB RAM be ok ? (Axis Camera station requires 4 GB RAM only)
4. Is my processor suffecient to execute a backup ? (Axis Camera station requires dual core processor with 2 GHz speed only)
5. As I remember an agent is included by default for the backup exec media server to backup itself ?
