As Brad Anderson suggested a few times this year we are leading our businesses to a better IT future. Here’s a quick screen shot of one of our backups media agent servers hooked up to bunch of NL-SAS disks (150TB). One host (older model, no 10Gbps yet, running Windows 2008 R2) is sending backups over its dedicated 1Gbps interface to this media agent server who has a 10Gbps interface. Performance and traffic looks great . I love it when a plan comes together!

Now we’ll see what magic Data Deduplication can do for us with the RTM bits!
