Compression - Speed up jobs?
I am looking at a couple of ways to speed up the back-ups we do with Symantec Back-up Exec 2012 and im wondering whether or not somebody can confirm if compressing back-up jobs will speed up the time taken to complete?
Also, is hardware compression the best route?
We use an Ultrium HH5 Tape machine.
I know I could test this out myself one night, but im cautious about making changes without doing a little research first.
If someone could advise I would greatly appreciate it.
