SharePoint Agent Enhancements

Previous releases of NetBackup included powerful features for protecting Microsoft SharePoint databases. NetBackup 7.1 adds two minor but important additional features - support for SharePoint 2010 secondary filegroups and the ability to redirect granular recovery of web applications to a different farm. The additional SharePoint agent features are focused on improving compatibility with new features in SharePoint 2010 and providing a frequently requested capability.

Support for SharePoint 2010 secondary filegroups enables customers who use the secondary file...

Welcome to NetBackup 7.1! This series of blogs will provide additional information into the key features of NetBackup 7.1 continuing today with the changes and enhancements to OpsCenter and OpsCenter Analytics. OpsCenter 7.1 offers a number of new reports in the already robust reporting set.

  • Enhanced SLP including the new AIR functionality
  • Reporting on Audit Trails – Phase two
  • Workload Analyzer

This blog will take a quick look at each of these new reports and outline how they can assist in the reporting and management of the NetBackup environment.

Enhanced SLP Reporting

Storage Life Cycle Policies are used to automate the movement of backed up data from one storage area to another. Automated Image Replication takes Storage Lifecycle Policy a step further allowing backup images to be replicated to another master server domain using a NetBackup Policy vs. another form of replication. OpsCenter is used...

Welcome to NetBackup 7.1! This series of blogs will provide additional information into the key features of NetBackup 7.1 continuing today with Auto Image Replication (AIR).

The growth in the use of disk storage (particularly deduplicating disk storage) for backup has highlighted a limitation of disk storage when it comes to disaster recovery. Tapes can easily be sent offsite to be used for restores after a site outage. Disk doesn’t offer this flexibility. Some OpenStorage technologies, including the PureDisk Deduplication Option, support “out of band” replication where the contents of the disk storage is replicated between devices – however NetBackup has no knowledge of the data which makes recovery in a NetBackup protected environment more difficult. Using this approach the replicated data can only be accessed after recreating the NetBackup catalog – which is done by importing the entire content of the disk storage at the remote site using the...

Welcome to NetBackup 7.1! This series of blogs will provide additional information into the features of NetBackup 7.1 starting today with VMware Intelligent Policy (VIP).

Historically backups have been defined and referenced by the hostname of the physical system being protected. This has worked well when the relationship between the physical host and the operating system was a direct, one to one relationship. Backup processing impact was limited to each physical client and the biggest concern was saturating the network with backup traffic. This was easily managed by limiting the number of simultaneous client backups via a simple setting within the NetBackup policy.

Virtual machine technologies have changed this physical hardware dynamic. Dozens of operating systems (virtual machines) can now reside on a single physical (ESX) host connected to a single storage LUN with network access through a single NIC. When using traditional policy configurations, backup processing...
