Backup Exec Media Server Specifications
We have a a media server with the following specfications:
CPU: Xeon E5640 X 2
RAM: 32 GB
OS: 64 Bit windows Server 2008 R2 Standard
Storage: 20TB deduplication storage.
Media devices: 2 Tape Library's connected via iSCSI cable and card, 1 External iSCSI single tape drive.
10 Servers mixed VM and Physical devices on the same site as media server, targeting deduplications storage and then off to tape for weeklies and monthlies.
2 Servers backed up over WAN to the singe unit tape drive.
Client data backed up:
Exchange, SQL, Sharepoint, Snapshots of file servers and production servers.
We have only recently added the second tape library, to accomodate a dynamics installation and are interested in the following:
1. Are these specifications adequate for the backups being performed?
2. What we can do to improve backup performance with the given requirements?
3. If anyone has experience with Dynamics and what loads this may put on backups and storage requirements?
