Hi I have a customer that has linux and aix hosts in their environment and they have lots of small files within these 2 filesystems. Currently , they have HDS G500 as their underlying storage. As they are experiencing slow backup and restoration for their current veritas solution , hence i decided to propose intellsnap as part of the competitive take out value proposition.
We know that intellisnap helps to create app aware snapshots. IntelliSnap extends beyond just creating or deleted snapshots/clones. Secondary operations are automatically mounted to a proxy server which will mount the snapshots/clones for further processing, whether that is further indexing or cataloging of the data or creating longer term copies of the data to deduplicated disk, cloud copies, or tape. This content aware process provides rapid recovery options whether a full system recovery or a single file is required.
Question is once we are done with the intellisnap , can we do image backup which translate to faster backup regardless of small files? Can we still restore individual files after the indexing is done via intellisnap?
