So some useful questions might be:
1. How much data is being backed up and uploaded
2. How long does it take to send all the data (i.e. whats the backup window)
3. Is there any management around what is and what is not saved

Has this been used in a full rebuild/recovery scenario:
1. What is required to allow the G4G software to operate (i.e. how much of
an initial recovery has to be performed)
2. How long does it take to download the data
3. What additional time does downloading SAVFs and then restoring add to
the process
4. What additional storage is required to allow all/most of the save files
to be downloaded while the restore is running.

In real life on a production ERP system I think this could be a bit

For the IBM i we use our G4G software that I mentioned before. It allows
you to use a command or ILE interface to list and upload files to the
cloud. We use a job scheduled entry to run a program that reads through a
file with libraries and IFS paths to save

Here's an article I put together on it.

For PC I just use RoboCopy to move the files to the google drive folder on
my pc.

Actually quite easy.

What is the interface like? Is this something you do manually (via your
own programming) or does Google provide a backup agent?
