Welcome to the first installation in a series of blogs that will detail 12 topics around disaster recovery technology – thus the DRT ;)  These topics will cover industry trends, best practices, and relevant news on the topic that I feel you may also enjoy.

I’ll start with a brief introduction of myself.  My name is Michael Krutikov, and I have been in the IT field for over 14 years; in sales, training, out in the field as a systems consultant and VAR account executive, in product management and now in marketing. Through a constant learning journey that is driven through thousands of meetings with partners and customers, my mission is to deliver solutions for customer’s problems, challenges and goals.  

1)       Virtualization is the reality; not only is it an increasingly popular way to run your IT, but it can and should save you money while improving functionality. It almost goes without saying that if you’re not using...

In Backup Exec 2012, if you get the time out error as: 

The request channel timed out while waiting for a reply after 00:09:59.9980000. Increase the timeout value passed to the call to Request or Increase the sendTimeout value on the Binding. The time alloted to this operation may have been  a portion of a longer timeout.

This means, the UI of Backup Exec 2012 has waited for 10 minutes for the underlaying services to reply back.

If you want BE UI to wait for longer time (let us say 20 minutes),

  1. Stop the UI.
  2. Open the file BackupExec.exe.config (located at Program Files/Symantec/Backup Exec)
  3. Replance all the occurrences of 00:10:00 with 00:20:00
  4. Start the UI.

Prior to using Deduplication get an accurate snapshot of your system requirements. The first steps include determining what supported deduplication storage device and the type of deduplication you are going to use prior to installing the Deduplication Option.
Use the Hardware Compatibility List to help establish the storage device type.

Storage Types:
There are currently two main options to choose from:
1. Backup Exec Deduplication disk storage devices:
o A 64-bit Backup Exec server.
o A Backup Exec server with either one quad-core processor or two dual-core processors.
o The location needs to be on a dedicated / non-removable volume.

2. OpenStorage devices:
o The OpenStorage device requires a plug in or connector which is purchased from the...

A bank without money is not going to attract any customers. And while it’s unlikely that a sinkhole will suddenly appear and swallow up a vault, there is an important resource in business today that is all too vulnerable: information.

According to the latest State of Information Survey from Symantec, roughly half of an organization’s value can be attributed to the information it is generating and storing. And like the bank that needs to be able to loan out its funds to generate revenue through earning interest, information does companies no good if employees and customers can’t gain access to what they need.

There are a variety of factors that can put business information at risk today. Natural disasters, accidental deletions and malicious outsiders can all be as damaging to the average business as a robbery to a bank. In case disaster does strike, organizations need to know they have a...

How far along are you on your virtualization journey? Most organizations already have more than half of their systems virtualized and are currently virtualizing their most business critical applications.

Now you are facing the challenge of keeping your ever-expanding virtual environment protected while providing the required service level for the business critical physical systems. Managing two separate isolated environments increases complexity and introduces potential for gaps in the data protection strategy if not carefully planned and implemented.

A poorly planned data protection strategy will not only increase risk to the data but will also consume more storage, restrict your recovery options and increase the time spent managing the environment. This is why it is important to understand the options and pitfalls when building a data protection strategy for virtual and mixed environments.
