BE 2012 Optimized Duplication GRT
Hi. I am looking at implementing a local Deduplication store attached to the BE Server in our Datacenter and, using optimized duplication, replicate that data to our main office over a WAN where I have another BE Server and CASO.
All of this seems to be quite easy except when it comes to GRT backups. The Admin Guide states
"Optimized duplication can be performed on backup sets that were enabled for Granular Recovery Technology (GRT). However, only deduplication disk storage devices and PureDisk devices support optimized duplication for GRT-enabled backup sets."
Does this mean that if I am using "normal" deduplication storage being a LUN on a SAN that I cannot use Optimized duplication for any GRT backups? I only use GRT for Exchange and would need the WAN duplication to be optimized as it is about 700GB per night.
Also, if I were to use the Vmware Agent (I have 8 esxi5 Servers and about 80 VMs so it is cheaper to buy Vmware Agents rather than Windows Agents) as this uses GRT technology when backing up a "normal" server does this mean I cannot effectively duplicate these backups over the WAN?
Many Thanks in advance
