NetWorker 8 roundup

 

It’s not everyday that a product like NetWorker gets a major version release. I had wanted to provide some insight in regards to this release and delve into the new features a little. Did I mention I live in Canada? Our summers are short and my weekends have been filled with beer, Bar B Que’s, weddings and some summer festival type things. Right now I’m on my deck with my wife who has just made some kind of fruity alcohol filled concoction. Anyway, it has been a great summer. Work has been a little to busy for research during business hours. Of course Storagezilla and Preston were way more productive thankfully. Preston got in the lab to play with the product a little. He identifies some major architectural changes such as concurrent read write access to AFTD’s and a new daemon nsrsnmd which is a storage node multiplexor manager. This will will results in fewer interuption to the nsrd process.

Storagezilla provides some great insight into some of the new features and how NetWorker 8 will integrate with Data Domain boost technologies and get it’s hooks into more applications and databases.

I’m looking forward to doing some more research and presenting a case to my clients to upgrade to NetWorker 8.

Demonstrating Avamar BMR with EMC vLab

This is a screencast demonstrating and performing bare metal restores with Avamar. This was the first time I’ve used EMC’s vLab and I was very impressed.  EMC’s vLab alows you to provision work loads online to demonstrate and train on EMC’s technologies.

Backing up and restoring VMWARE with Avamar

Starting Monday June 11th I’ll be participating in an online Q&A regarding backing up VMware with Avamar on EMC’s community network. If you support any EMC products you probably know how valuable the ECN network is. EMC has created and invested greatly in growing what has become a an active online community, where techs can engage with EMC knowledge experts. I met some of the guys from ECN while at EMC world and shared with them some of my experience, including building the Avamar grid to backup VMware for my companies cloud computing solution. I’m looking forward to sharing some of my learnings from this project.

https://community.emc.com/events/1373

The thread will be open for a few weeks and I’ll be logging in once a day to answer any questions.
