My name is Elizabeth Teffner. I'm a Customer Research Analyst at Symantec. Our Customer Research group is organizing Customer Safaris to observe how Data Scientists, Database Administrators and Storage Administrators do their work.
 
What is a Customer Safari?
 
Customer Safari is where we come to your office and observe your day. Understanding how people work and go through their day helps us generate ideas on how we may make improvements or create new products or services. The best way to do this is to quietly sit and observe how a typical day for our customers goes.   
 
If you are interested, we are looking for 3 to 4 hours to sit with you and observe.  There will be little interaction except for occasional clarification question. Also, this is not a sales call!  This is strictly a customer research project. During our visit...

IT organizations face hardware, software and database / application downtime, lasting short periods of time to shutting down the business for days on a regular basis. Without adequate planning and preparation, any type of downtime can compromise a return to operations and cause financial damage as the ability to generate revenue is lost. Most organizations anticipate that unplanned downtime can — and likely will — occur at some future time. But, in today's world, the need to ensure Web-enabled 24 x 7 x 365 access to key applications is paramount. Thus planning for operational continuity and recovery from outages is rapidly becoming an urgent priority for commercial and government entities alike.

Providing the following information when creating a GRT Exchange case will not only help the TSE narrow down the issue, but will help resolve your case faster and more efficient.  This information will help the TSE outline an action plan before the first call back and WebEx.

What is GRT ? Granular Recovery Technology allows you to restore, at the most granular level meaning an individual piece of mail rather that the whole database.  If you are unsure you are using GRT , look at your policy attributes.  If the box 'enable granular recovery' is checked, then you are using GRT.  If it is not, please refer to this blog :

Hi

As today the Pure Disk Is going to End of Support , so i would like to share the Migration steps if any one want to  migrate from Puredisk Server to Netbackup Deduplication Option, As we are also migrating these days Pure Disk to Netbackup Dedupe Media Server.

Following are the steps

1. Restore data for client to a Local machine.

2. Backup this data to Netbackup using one new policy.

3. Configure seeding using this new policy & take backup of Client over WAN.

This will cause to find that client's data in MSDP storage cache. Hence Client will not send exisiting Data over WAN & first backup will finish faster. It will take low bandwidth.

4. Once first backup is successful then remove seeding settings .
