How to backup NetApp 2020s
We're running rather a small shop here.
We have a Linux Netbackup master/media server with dozen Linux & Windows clients.
A couple of NetApp 2020 are going to be installed soon. Please consider that I'm not familiar with NetApp products and features.
I know that with NDMP I could backup the NetApp the proper way, however the licenses seems to be quite expensive.
We did purchase the SnapMirror license though, as we intend to mirror data from one filer to the other.
For the time being, we'll backup the data mounting the CIFS shares on a Win client.
I wonder if there's a way to use the snapmirror or some other native technology to speed up the backups.
Any idea would be really appreciated.
