A typical server environment consists of the main servers, drive arrays (which may or may not be directly attached to their respective servers), and disk- and tape-based backup servers. The most common IT assets are typically: patch panel, switches, secondary UPS, switch box, monitor and keyboard, blade servers, drive arrays and tape systems. Server storage devices hold organisational applications and operating systems in some partitions and documents in others.
Like any system servers are subject to a range of threats as well as maintenance which can include:
  • Server Crash
  • End users can easily overwrite or delete important documents
  • Applications need updating
  • Operating systems must be patched – perhaps tested in a virtual environment
  • Upgrade new server platforms
  • Malicious code can penetrate defences and attack data, applications, and operating systems
  • and can even get backed up if it is not...

Did anyone notice the rather impressive Backup Exec test report on SP2 that came out in May (the Service Pack came out in May and the Report in June) … to be precise. BE 12.5 SP2 went GA on 18th May via FileConnect. The whole point of SP2 was to improve speed and performance of Backup Exec. It also had a few new fixes and enhancements, but was mainly to provide enhanced performance for 12.5 and earlier versions.
Backup Performance Is Important

All backup jobs have some performance impact on the system that is being backed up. We have been living with such phrases as “The Shrinking Backup Window” for this very reason – and for years. Inevitably, for the period of time that a system is being backed up, the hard drive is busy reading files in order to carry out the backup. You usually have to run this type of process when it is less likely to impact the...
