EMC Avamar Install   Leave a comment


Well, the EMC Avamar install is underway.

We’re installing a production 2+1 configuration at our production site, and a matching 2+1 configuration at our DR site. Couple this with the inherent deduplication and replication technology and you realise that together with VMWare and other EMC technologies various infrastructure options lay before us.

In essence, the Avamar equipment will replace our tape backup regime, give us the flexibility to plan a “warm” DR site, and open up the possibility of implementing our own private cloud. The result is lower operational costs and greater recovery certainty and efficiencies. Plus, it releases some IT staff’s time to higher-value work.
