  • How to use NAS gateways
    A NAS head can also appear as a standalone appliance such as NetApp s gFiler that functions as a gateway to connect storage arrays of different tiers and even different vendors These gateway products generally use Fibre Channel FC to connect to back end arrays Using one central NAS head to consolidate existing NAS filers creates the following issues Performance may drop as more users access their files centrally Users may face network storage quotas for the first time Managing cataloging and determining ownership of multiple versions of files with the same name but different access and modification dates Determining what type of disk the different types of data can sit on Support for the iSCSI protocol allows organizations to use NAS heads for file and block based services The ability to dynamically re stripe data across back end arrays lets administrators optimize the performance of new and existing data And as more NAS head vendors support and certify different vendors arrays users no longer need to lock themselves into a particular vendor s array Many NAS head vendors now support multiple tiers of back end storage along with policy management tools that allow aging files to be transparently migrated from one tier of storage to another With so many options available users need to distinguish between required and optional features on NAS heads The must have list includes Ethernet ports to connect servers NFS and CIFS protocol support Support of multiple tiers of storage Policy based management Storage management functions such as snapshots and mirrors In addition organizations should consider the following features as they plan for the future iSCSI support FC ports to connect NAS head gateways to external arrays Support for multiple vendors arrays Dynamic allocation and extension of volumes and file shares Ability to re stripe data across back end arrays File sharing with remote offices Global namespace This article first appeared in Storage magazine in the March issue About the author Jerome M Wendt is a storage analyst specializing in the field of open systems storage and SANs He has managed storage for small and large sized organizations in this capacity This was first published in April 2005 Dig Deeper on SAN virtualisation All News Problem Solve Bad sectors Storage news from Dell Zerowait and Waikato District Health Board New Zealand Bank banking on SAN virtualisation strategy VSphere Storage Appliance to replace mid range arrays analyst Why storage administrators have become bandwidth day traders Load More View All Bad sectors Storage news from Dell Zerowait and Waikato District Health Board New Zealand Bank banking on SAN virtualisation strategy VSphere Storage Appliance to replace mid range arrays analyst Why storage administrators have become bandwidth day traders Load More View All News How to create an iSCSI SAN using Xen View All Problem solve ADS BY GOOGLE Latest TechTarget resources CIO AU Security AU Data Backup Disaster Recovery SMB Storage Storage Channel Search CIO com au Internet of Things Food safety apps set to emerge Food safety

  • SharePoint backup glitch sees TSM out, CommVault in at FaHCSIA
    implementation We were running Tivoli Storage Manager TSM but it was not delivering the Microsoft integration we were looking for on Active Directory SharePoint or Exchange says Christopher Luyt an Assistant Director at FaHCSIA TSM could not do individual mail item or mailbox recovery on Exchange and SharePoint integration was poor So poor Luyt says that Avepoint the company with which IBM has partnered to add SharePoint backup features to TSM experienced two major outages TSM could not give us any support Luyt says and emergency measures to protect the Department s SharePoint data were required Luyt already felt that TSM is hard to configure has poor central management and is expensive and the outages convinced him that a new backup solution was imperative Enter CommVault with which Luyt is happy since its mid 2010 implementation We put in CommVault quite quickly to do SharePoint recovery and then looked at expanding that presence The Department now uses the software for most of its backup needs and has an enterprise licence complete with three years maintenance and support that has made CommVault substantially cheaper than TSM License management is also far easier Luyt says the Department was found wanting in a software audit conducted by IBM and finds its new arrangements with CommVault make for far more predictable costs which makes for easier budgeting Other benefits include better backup stability more successful backups and better retention Luyt says staff are also spending less time on backups We had lots of scheduling issues with TSM because you need to go to each client to configure backups with command lines We used to have one person whose job was just TSM maintenance Backup is now just a quarter of his time Luyt and his team are now looking at other CommVault features especially those that use EMC snapshotting features as the Department uses EMC Centerra arrays Luyt said he is also contemplating a medium term upgrade to EMC s new VNX unified storage range Another new hardware purchase is a set of HP Left Hand We have a location that needed its own storage and we picked LeftHand It is substantially cheaper than EMC ADS BY GOOGLE Latest TechTarget resources CIO AU Security AU Data Backup Disaster Recovery SMB Storage Storage Channel Search CIO com au Internet of Things Food safety apps set to emerge Food safety could emerge as a key application for the Internet of Things in the coming months providing real time visibility in Cloud security culture a building block for today s businesses As organizations today move more data to the cloud it s important to cultivate a cloud security culture and enlist a CISO a new How to do an advanced data analytics project on the cheap Delivering an advanced data analytics project to the business can cost a fortune But with some imagination CIOs can do it for Search Security com au Weigh the benefits risks of going mobile in the enterprise Smartphone and tablet use in
