NBU dimensioning puredisk DSU

Created: 05 Apr 2013 | 2 comments

Good morning all,

  today i need to dimension a new MEDIA for a bunch of servers that are going to be added to the one.

I'm talking of 10 servers someone with SAP db, below detailed:

2.35T of raw space (maximum disk capacity summed for all the servers).

370G Sap db+Arch logs (actually running).

Around (foresight) 500G of new DB (Sharepoint installation for Documentum)

Sap db+arch logs runs everyday.

Disks backup 1Full+6inc.

Sharepoint will run too everyday (i don't know if it will use mssql process or another specific one that can use inc+full).

Retention 2Weeks for all the backups.

I'm thinking about initial 6T of /DSU (PUREDISK with dedup) in order to stay quite for some time, but i would like to have a real and precise measrument to calculate it prior to stay far from reality.

Thank you.

Kind Regards,

Operating Systems:

You need to work out the math. How much data your backing up, how much do these data types dedup along with your retentions.

Your db's wont dedup.
