Tremendous growth is occurring with NAS file data as well. Data approaching PB scale is challenging backup strategies. PowerScale offers several options with Commvault integrations to create a backup solution. For the best RTO and RPO, snapshots can be taken of a directory tree for quick local backup and recovery using SnapshotIQ. For an online remote copy, SyncIQ provides replication of a directory tree snapshot. And for an offline copy, NDMP backups can be taken of a directory tree using various PowerScale features, including the Multi-Stream NDMP feature that is unique to PowerScale, to increase the backup performance and minimize the amount of data to be backed up.
Basic best practices for integrating Commvault with PowerScale enable quick, easy, and straightforward deployments using the fewest settings to get you started. The advanced best practices identify opportunities to configure the system for performance, scalability, or highly secure environments for a more optimized deployment model. These advanced best practices require a high level of knowledge, support, and time to plan for the deployment of all the components.
