Re: appliance and cloud backup



fixed

We do not have BRMS, but that is in the plan.
The 2 partitions are currently 750Gb and 2.3Tb with an additional 1.5 Tb of images
to be restored soon (using Content Manager for images, and
converting what's on optical platters to virtual optical ).

Jim,

Do you use BRMS?
What size are your 2 partitions?
I'm currently researching disk backup solutions.

Have reviewed multiple threads on cloud stuff last year.

I'm not asking for a basic knowledge of the process, but asking for the good and the bad of what you implemented. I've already contacted several vendors.

This is not a small installation, but upgrading from old hardware and methods.
Current backup 2 partitions nightly to 3590 tape(whole libraries, not chgobj).
No current journaling. Total of tab on i (internal drives, 50% IFS) and growing 20% yr.
Re-evaluating DR for i and Win, and need to ensure i side works well.
Need quick local restore, plus total recoverability.
Do have an existing contract for recoverability to a replacement box.
One existing data center (but a "sister corp" in another state has a center...), several remote offices. Encryption/security required in a regulated industry.
