Glad to see you've introduced yourself to the community -- welcome! Hopefully you'll share the #oldmandrap with all of us sometime soon?!
Hey Samantha. the #oldmanrap is always a possibility, at any event, after a few refreshments.
Hey James, thanks for the email and sorry for the late reply. I had a question for you that hopefully you could help me with. If not, maybe some advise on the best place to post this. Thanks. See below:
We are running into customers with extensive tape legacy backgrounds. They want to apply the tape retention (ie GFS - Grandfather, Father, Son) structure to the Asigra platform. The issue is its' increasing the size of our backups deeming the solution to be not economically viable for the customer.
The question is are there other members dealing with the same issue and what are they doing from a data management perspective to both satisfy the customer and keep the costs down?
Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
I am Hemant Gambhir & currently associated with Wipro Technologies and I am working on Various Backup Applications and managing huge Infrastructure.
Looking forward where we all can share our valuable thoughts on related technologies via this forum and I am sure it'll be great learning as well.
Thanks & Good day!
I'm Phil Collins (no, not that one.), I work for EMC managed services in the UK. I manage a large installation for one of our customers, with 7 datazones across 9 sites spread across Europe. I've been working in the world of backup for far too long, after a history as a hardware engineer. My expertise (as you'd expect) is mainly in the world of Networker, but I've dipped a toe into Netbackup, Commvault and a few other products.
Welcome! Glad to see another Brit onboard. We've just been looking at the possibility of rolling out EMC for our next set of storage actually.
