• Traditional Backup
• LAN-Free Backup
• Serverless Backup
• Tape Virtualization
• When is Tape Not Enough?
• Split Mirrors
• Remote Mirroring
We are going to go through terminology.
We are going to go through traditional backup, LAN Free backups. We are
going to go through our tape options and then, because tape is not always
enough we are going to go through disk replication strategies both in system
and between systems.
Remote mirroring is an abused term because remote just means sub-system
to sub-system. Of course, how remote depends on how long the cable is or
how long the connection is. So it could be next door, not necessarily the best
replication strategy. It could be in the basement or on the roof of the same
building. Or it could even be between sites or between geographies.
