NDMP Backups or Better
We have recently implemented a BlueARC NAS device with 60TB of storage and have a Dual LTO 5 tape library. The BlueARC supports NDMP backup and from a post on your knowledge base you are not looking to implement NDMP in your software in the future. My question really is what would be the best way to get the full potential from the LTO drives when using Presstore?
I currently have a Trunked 4Gb link to our switch and 10GB to our NAS device, the Tape Library is connected over 4Gb Fibre, but I very rarely get above 5% buffer on the tape device, so the drives are obviously not being fed quickly enough. I have a client with the same setup but Atempo Time Navigator running NDMP and they get a significantly higher throughput to their drives.
