    Who users what these days for disk2disk2tape solutions.  I have long been a fan of Netvault, but haven't used the last two or three versions.

     

    With production data sets getting so big these days how do you backup your data?  For those with 500TB or more the backup window just ain't big enough.

    Has anyone run into a vendor that makes Rapid Rail-like angle brackets? Something like the AB2035 product from these guys:

    http://www.rackmountsolutions.net/rack_brackets.asp#004

    but that simply clips into square hole racks without the need for cage nuts and screws? Could be useful to speed up deployment of rental equipment.

    Looking for Recommendation for Secure Document Sending.
    posted by William Sandler on Aug. 8, 2016, noon
    Curious as to what other Sysadmins have implemented for sending larger documents to clients or vendors that exceed attachment limits. Preferably with some kind of security.

    Dropbox Business looks good with SSO integration andTOTP options but would like to hear what else is out there.

  • Fileserver SSD Cache
    posted by Saham Ali on Aug. 9, 2016, 9:10 a.m.
    Hey guys,
    Just wanted to poke the hive mind and see what,if anything, people are doing to utilize SSD flash storage as a cache layer on top of their file servers?
    In the past I have used LSI Cachecade, Which helped, only with files that are used over and over again, but new files read or written, wouldn't necessarily take advantage of the SSD. Great for DB transactions and same file read and writes, not for new frames and new data.

    Is there any roll your own solution, other than going with ZFS where you can have a cache pool of storage, which presents itself to the file system, where all initial read and writes take place, and then delayed writes to disks happen, or even a way to have a folder maybe using directory junction to appear as if its in the same space as the root of the file system but actually sit on the SSDs?

    Thanks!

    Has any one played around with Storage Spaces in Server 2012?
    Reading how they have abstracted RAID to the OS Level, and you have the capability to have tiered storage with SSD's for hot data.

    You end up creating a virtual disk, and that is what you end up mounting to share out to the network.

    Anyone have any realworld usage with M&E workflows?

    Only downside is the SAS enclosures you want are limited to about 4 trays, but you can have HA setups wich is nice.
