I have inherited an environment that utilizes Syncsort and Snap Mirror-to-Tape using a NetApp R200.
Currently I backup all the data to a NearStore R200, from there I connect directly to a tape library and move the snaps across fiber to tape.
I am looking to migrate away from this approach in favor of using SAN Resource sharing using Syncsort 3.x
I am wondering about migration from the NetApp R200 appliance. I would like to retire that box but I understand that if I need to do a restore from a tape created by snap mirror to tape, I will need the r200?
How can I migrate? is it possible to restore directly from tape to the Syncsort server? How have other users been able to retire NetApp solutions?
Thanks in advance
