Backing up Sentinel 7 data


Hi all,

We are brainstorming about our sentinel 7 production environment and
are considering our backup strategy and I was wondering what your
thoughts are about this topic.

First our current situation (sentinel 6):
Our sentinel server is archiving every day old events to a file. This
file is then back-uped to tape and after the backup deleted.

New situation (Sentinel 7):
Because everything is already a file we can't use our old strategy
anymore. We also want to use the extra compression (remote storage) to
have more data online, so we can't use the remote storage to backup. I
guess this mean we should resort to some external solution to move files
to some other directory to be back-uped and deleted ( a script or
something like that). Or is there something we can do with sentinel
itself to do this?
We don't want to backup all data on the remote storage.

Please share your thoughts about this topic or how Sentinel backup is
arranged at your company.

Kind regards,
Anco Vader

Re: Backing up Sentinel 7 data


Hello, Anco.


Have you looked into the backup utility for Sentinel 7 that's described
in the Administration guide? If it doesn't do what you want, what are
you trying to do that's not possible right now?

Re: Backing up Sentinel 7 data


Thanks for pointing that out Cheryl, I have looked at this briefly and
although it is a great tool for making the parts that aren't a file
already available for back-up, for the sentinel data I see no advantage
in it compared to just making a incremental backup of the remote
storage.
At the moment I am thinking at the following strategy:
Make a backup with the backup script once every week or so and making
an always incremental backup of the remote storage (I don't know if the
backup software we like this after a few years, I have to speak to the
backup people about this yet).

So it's not that I have no idea or that I have problems with it, I just
want to investigate the different possibilities.
