Very new in this technology and a bit lost.
I am trying to cater for ESM remote backups (through NFS) and trying to calculate what the performance requirement would be in terms of throughput.
The service we are about to hire offers about 100Mbits/s per Tb of capacity purchased and I was wondering if that'd be enough for a 2Tb-ish implementation.
Any thoughts about this? It would be much appreciated.
I have read the info before but unfortunately it doesn't really state how the backups are copied onto the NFS share. Is it a simple copy process (like; dd, rsync, scp, cp, etc) or not at all and it is a proprietary solution that transfers the data across and, whichever the case, what's the recommended throughput for the data to transfer properly and to be able to restore properly too.
There is no information about the copy process but i think it will be rsync.
In my enviroment we have an redundancy ESM with 35Tb Database in all. And the sync was finished after 3 days and the finalys sync of the SSD-Raid was ready after 4 - 8 hours.
