Best backup scheme with this data and hardware?

by seedubya » Tue Apr 21, 2015 11:19 pm

I have a 2012R2 Server with approx. 850GB of data.
I have available 3x NAS devices with either 5.8TB (RAID1) or 11.6TB (RAID 0 or JBOD). A 2TB external USB3 drive may also be available. The NAS devices support iSCSI.

Could you please advise on the best scheme for backing-up up this server while retaining as much data as possible? Data growth in the next 12 months should be, at most, 25%

Hi,

it's Tim from BackupAssist.

To run incremental image backups to the NAS, you will need to run the backup to a Data container on the NAS, otherwise each backup will be a full backup.

For more information on Data containers, please refer to the following user guide: http://www.backupassist.com/downloads/r ... ainers.pdf

We would recommend running System protection backups that will support bare metal restores.

For more information on System protection backups, please refer to the following user guide: http://www.backupassist.com/downloads/v ... rguide.pdf

System protection backups support backups to NAS, iSCSI and external USB drives.

In addition to System protection backups, you can also run File protection backups for redundancy purposes.

For more information on File protection backups, please refer to the following user guide: http://www.backupassist.com/education/v ... paper.html

I hope this helps.

Regards,

Tim
