Question: How can I save on tape usage?
I am kind of puzzled by the amount of tapes my setup is using. Can someon shed some light on me on how can I optimize my backup setup to use the least amount of tapes? Or, point me to any documentation that shows how?
I have 1 master (running 18.104.22.168 on SLES 10 SP3) plus 3 media servers (2 SLES 10 SP3, and 1 Win2k8R2). 9 LTO5 drives + 3 LTO4, inside a Quantum i6000. I also using some of those drives for NDMP of 3 NetApp filers. 45 policies, 590 clients, and 3 storage unit groups.
