I know with the end of year approaching, and hunting season and holiday items, but any thoughts of getting together maybe to share what everyone is or has been doing, maybe on what versions everyone is on, any projects changes your doing, and some planning for next year ?
I know for myself I been very busy with a lot of system updates and migrations that I work on outside of Netbackup, which has kept me busy.
But I also spent some time improving some performance items.  Please let me know if your interested in doing a meeting and lunch to catch up.  Maybe not as long or formal, but I would like to see if we can get the group together again, and see what and where everyone is doing with Netbackup and where they see things heading in the upcomming year.
Thank you.

Let's have a frank, honest conversation about Backup Exec 2014...

Greetings intrepid data center wranglers!  Earlier this summer, Symantec released Backup Exec 2014.  This release returned some of your favorite features (HELLLOOOOO JOB MONITOR!) in addition to adding some key new tools improving your virtualization and Windows experience.

Well…it’s been 90 days and our first service pack dropped at the end of last month.  Backup Exec 2014 has been in the wild for a few months and we’d like to talk with you about it.  On Friday, 17 October at 1.00 EDT, we will be hosting a Reddit AMA featuring members of the Backup Exec development team

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 .

From a business perspective, a disaster isn’t just a violent storm or terrorist attack that makes news headlines. Anything that makes normal operations difficult or impossible can be disastrous – Imagine that all of your customer files have evaporated, along with everyone’s email messages, pending customer orders and your entire accounts receivables database. This type of loss not only interrupts the flow of business but could halt it completely, and it poses a threat you can’t ignore.

Data recovery planning is essential for every business and should be part of an overall resiliency or business continuity plan. This plan will help you continue operations in the face of adverse incidents, big or small, and avoid catastrophic losses. At a high level data recovery planning can be broken down into three primary steps:

  1. Assess: Know and understand the value of your data and the impact loss would have on the business.

It’s one of the highlights of the year, and this year not only didn’t disappoint, it was the best one yet. While the conference is officially ending tomorrow, the majority of the action has taken place, and the closing party is tonight as well. Did I mention The Black Keys are playing (woohoo!), a great band I look forward to seeing live.

This year VMware set up a ‘pub crawl’ style reception for the vendor floor last night. I can say from experience (mostly good, but occasionally bad) that a conference host that looks for creative ways to continue to get the attendees in front of the sponsors is very much appreciated. Kudos to the entire VMWorld team for a great event! This week has continually, and at times overwhelmingly, had great booth traffic. I love the conversations and interaction with attendees that ask questions about how they can do more with virtual. We’ve solved problems together, built strategies together, and we’ll see success together from this.
