Netbackup - SQL Server - Moving from Disk - Tape to DDT
We are currently using the SQL Server plugin for NetBackup and backing up databases directly to tape. By reviewing our SQL Server wait stats, I am finding that a lot of time is spent waiting for the tape backups to complete. If we switch to native SQL Server backup (to disk), and then use Netbackup for a file-level backup of the native backup files, are we losing any benefits? The only bad thing I can think of is the additional disk storage that will be needed.
We are on NetBackup 7.1 currently upgrading to 7.5.
