Competently we select and we test storage of the backups

1 year, 8 months ago
Continuing to open subject not of the most obvious, but interesting, aspects of creation of backup systems, it is offered to discuss, so to say, ending point of this system today? place where your backups will remain and to find out why it is important to approach with all gravity its planning. Anyone can call this place as? repository, storeydzh, drive, storage system, etc. But for simplicity of statement we will stop on option? storage?, meaning the classical disk storage module (i.e. tapes, magneto-optics and it similar will not be mentioned today).



Reason for writing of article became unclear as the developed tradition that at creation of backups by storage any stuff, and the phenomenon which for some reason has become norm when the only considered characteristic is the equipment price can act. And it is desirable that for three selected kopeks there were rubber disks from the most viscous rubber. At best can pay still attention to the work speed declared by the vendor, and even without reflecting that for digit have shown and what it treats. The it is more than a digit, the better, here even you should not doubt.

Here only the problem is that some modes of creation of backups impose very serious requirements for the speed of reading and/or record to storages, without forgetting the general stability. And it means that if not to consider them at planning stage, it is possible to receive at best hardly live system, and in the worst to go to buy the new equipment at the expense of the award.

Under cat I will try to explain how in advance to predict behavior of storage, proceeding from your plan of backup, and also in practice to prove what to select storage for backups by the residual principle? it is vicious practice.
