We have 2 Netapp filers in our environment. We have created CIFS shares out those for user Home drive and departmental shares
Currently there is no limit or quota for these shares.
There are snapshots( for 2 weeks) and snap mirror enabled for these shares. In addition to this we are also backing up these shares to tape by using NDMP backup technology. We are facing lot of challenges for backing up these shares are the volume of data is ever growing.
Would like to know the best possible ways to protect the data on these share. Do we really need to take the tape backup?
What would be the best backup techniques that we should follow here?
