Evan, regarding our G4G (GreenTools for Google Apps) software.

It's an IBM i middleware tool that allows you to directly upload files to
Google Drive account. That's it.

Speed of uploading will be determined by connection speeds.

What is required is G4G and a license for the Google Drive Addon (as well
as our GETURI software).

G4G contains many different Addons that allow you to work with Google APIs
such as GMail (downloading and separating out the email into parts, such as
the email body, attachments, images, etc), Google Cloud Print, Google
Contacts, etc. Each is licensed separately if needed.

Everything else is something that is part of the process should a restore
be needed and would be the same as using save file or tape.

I haven't used tape or physical media for PC or IBM i backup (data that is,
not a system save) in years.

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
challenging.
