Plugging in a Thunderbolt device to a Thunderbolt peripheral, such as a Thunderbolt Display, can cause a pause in connected devices. This can interrupt printing, scanning, or other operations on Thunderbolt and USB devices which are not designed handle a pause and are connected to that series of devices.
I'm researching backup solutions for an XSAN that will soon be over 100TB, and had a couple of questions.
With P5, is it possible to backup an XSAN to a Windows server, without attaching the Windows Server to the XSAN using Stornext? Due to the size of the XSAN, it would also be nice if it were possible to do so using 10GbE (or similar). I want to maintain the ability to use XSAN features that aren't supported with Stornext clients, while being able to backup to our existing Windows infrastructure, and using something faster than GbE due to the large amount of data.
Not sure if it makes a difference, but the backup will be disk-to-disk.
Thanks in advance for any advice along these lines.
