DP 5.5 -> 6.1 VMware advice
August 12, 2009 03:29AM

Just registered here and this is my first post.

I have been managing a DP env for the last 5 years and I am planning to upgrade DP5.5 to 6.1 in the new future and I was hoping to get some advice / guidance as to new features in 6.1.

[b]Current Environment[/b]
DP version : DP5.5
Cell Manager : HP rx3600 running HP-UX11.23
CPU & RAM : 1 x 1.4GHz DualCore/12MB & 4GB
TBL : HP MSL6090 with 6 x LTO-4 Tape Drives
Windows IS : Windows Server 2003 (4 - 5 yr old hardware)
VMware : 4 x Dell R900 servers with 20 VM per server (approx)

At the moment each VM is backed up individually.

Reading the W. Curtis Preston July/August 2009 Storage Magazine article "Virtual Servers put pressure on backup" there is lots to consider.

Please reply with your experience.
