Oes15 backup strategy


So thinking of upgrading our physical oes11 servers to a new set of VMware Oes15 servers.

My main Questions are I guess on storage and backups?

Does DST work and is it worth looking at.

I'm going to have around 12tb of data probably on a HPE DL380gen9 with a MSA2040 connected via SATA with RAID10 disk array filling up the first enclosure on the 2040.

I want a new file structure and layout and only want to drag some data in and have some older data still visible, but want to move that off 7 year old hardware.

So this extra data what is a cheap way of keeping it online can I use something like a qnap to store it on with DST or what is recommended another second vmhost with a loading of internal disks in an array? Not quite as much as the big vm?

How do I do a decent backup and have months of backups? Veeam and a huge qnap which syncs to another offsite qnap or what? Any advice appreciated.

Re: Oes15 backup strategy

Why have you posted in this forum? Are you trying to migrate a NetWare server?

Your post deals with a number of items not specifically related to (NetWare?) Product Support:

  • VMware (features and capabilities)
  • OES (features and capabilities)
  • Server design (shared storage)
  • Backup strategies
  • Backup software capabilities

Your post doesn't have a simple answer. To answer your questions you would need to provide considerably more detail which would result in a lengthy discussion on each of the above items.

This is exactly the type of discussion for which the new Technical Discussions forum was created.

Why don't you repost in that forum and see what kind of response you get?
