how do you estimate MCSS storage requirements? MCSS (cool) would be our customers’ cloud secondary copy in their existing Commvault environment. So there are values available like local block size (128KB), deduplication factor, baseline size and such for estimation We’re seeing around 1.2 to 1.3 x in MCSS demand compared to local disk with customers who set it up recently. As MCSS secondary copies “must have a minimum retention of 30 days", reducing retention (which oftentimes is the customer’s choice for solving storage issues) is apparently not an option here.
While of course we cannot provide a 100% estimation, we intend to not be too much off.
