Hey, don’t forget, my new book is available. Jam packed with information about protecting across all types of RPOs and RTOs, as well as helping out on the procedural and governance side of things. Check it out today on Amazon! (Kindle version available, too.) In my introductory NetWorker 9.1 post, I covered file level recovery (FLR) from VMware [...]
NetWorker 9 modules for SQL, Exchange and Sharepoint now make use of ItemPoint to support granular recovery. ItemPoint leverages NetWorker’s ability to live-mount a database or application backup from compatible media, such as Advanced File Type devices or Data Domain Boost. I thought I’d step through the process of performing a table level recovery out [...]
I want to try something different with this post. Rather than the usual post with screen shots and descriptions, I wanted instead to do a demo video showing just how easy it is to do file level recovery (FLR) from NetWorker VMware Image Level Backup thanks to the new NVP or vProxy system in NetWorker [...]
The “Wannacry” Ransomware strike saw a particularly large number of systems infected and garnered a great deal of media attention. As you’d expect, many companies discussed ransomware and their solutions for it. There was also backlash from many quarters suggesting people were using a ransomware attack to unethically spruik their solutions. It almost seems to be [...]
If you need to find out details about what has recently been recovered with a NetWorker server, there’s a few different ways to achieve it. NMC, of course, offers recovery reports. These are particularly good if you’ve got admins (e.g., security/audit people) who only access NetWorker via NMC – and good as a baseline report [...]
With just a few more days of 2017 left, I thought it opportune making the last post of the year to summarise some of what we’ve seen in the field of data protection in 2017. It’s been a big year, in a lot of ways, particularly at DellEMC. Towards the end of 2016, but definitely [...]
In the 90s, if you wanted to define a “disaster recovery” policy for your datacentre, part of that policy revolved around tape. Back then, tape wasn’t just for operational recovery, but also for disaster recovery – and even isolated recovery. In the 90s of course, we weren’t talking about “isolated recovery” in the same way [...]
Introduction In Data Protection: Ensuring Data Availability, I talk quite a lot about what you need to understand and plan as part of a data protection environment. I’m often reminded of the old saying from clothing and carpentry – “measure twice, cut once”. The lesson in that statement of course is that rushing into something [...]
In late 2016, I wrote a post, Falling in love with the IRS. In that post, I provided a bit of an outline on how an Isolated Recovery Site works. In this post, I want to instead ask 3 simple questions to help you understand why you might need an IRS (or “airgapped”) environment for your [...]
What do you do in the event of a disaster, either across your environment, or within your backup environment? What do you do when the NetWorker server itself stops working? Maybe you ran a physical server with DAS RAID which lost too many drives, or maybe an OS patching exercise …
In my previous post, I mentioned how NetWorker 18.1 introduces the WebUI. While NMC is still present in NetWorker 18.1, the WebUI is there and can be used for some functions, with those functions to be expanded more fully in time. Having just upgraded my lab NetWorker server from 126.96.36.199 …
There’s a German song, “Die Gedanken sind frei” (“Thoughts are free”), where the first verse runs as follows: Die Gedanken sind frei, wer kann sie erraten, sie fliegen vorbei wie nächtliche Schatten. Kein Mensch kann sie wissen, kein Jäger sie schießen mit Pulver und Blei: Die Gedanken sind frei! If, …
Introduction When NetWorker 18.1 was released, it wasn’t just the core NetWorker environment that got an update – the application and database modules (including Microsoft modules) also got an update. For me, one of the cooler things that got included in NMDA was a feature developed initially for the Data …
Of late I’ve been playing around a little bit with KVM. I must admit, it’s not really my virtualisation system of choice, but I’ve been using VMware in some form or another since the late 90s, so that could as much as anything be a case of what-I’m-used-to-syndrome. Because I’m a …
