Question for Function and Demerit in using DeDuplication
Because I'm not good at English very well., please answer intelligibly (easy).
I will use DeDuplication Option.
Target OS is...
- Windows (Agent for Windows)
- Linux (Agent for Linux)
- VMWare (Agent for VMWare)
Target Database is...
- Lotus Domino (Agent for Lotus Domino)
- SQL Database (Agent for SQL Database)
- Oracle Database (Agent for Oracle Database)
I will back up all files with DeDuplication Option.
'Agent for Oracle Database' is actually 'RMAN(Recovery Manager) of Oracle Function'.
When I use 'Agent for Oracle Database' and I backup 'Oracle Instance',
is this backup data done DeDuplication?
What is demerit of DeDuplication?
Symantec Document wrote that it was better to put 'Full Backup' and 'Incremental Backup' together.
If I use 'Incremental Backup' with DeDuplication Option,
when I restore it, do I need to restore both 'Full Backup' and 'Incremental Backup'?
Symantec Document wrote that the target for me to duplicate backup data is only 'DeDuplication Folder' or 'Tape Device'.
(DeDuplication Folder is DeDuplication Format. Tape Device is Normal Backup Format.)
I want to use a folder on storage disk in substitution for 'Tape Device'.
The format is Normal Backup Format, this is OK.
Can 'DeDuplication Backup Folder' duplicate 'Normal Backup Folder Device'?
Thank you for your support.
