데이터의 손실의 결과

중요한 데이터를 손실한
회사중 93% 가 5년안에               eBailing
                             Shaken by auction site's long
 회사의 문을 내렸다.                 outage, some investors and
                             sellers defect
                             eBay was back in action after a 22-hour
                             outage last week, but public confidence

 – US Bureau of Labor        in the auction site's reliability was slower
                             to rebound, as evidenced by substantial
                             drops in the stock price and the number
                             of items for sale.




                        데이터 보호에 투자하지
                        않은 회사는 투자자의
                        신임이 떨어져 주식의

시장의 변화 동향

        • 인터넷의 기술 발전에 의해 급격히
          데이터의 용량이 증가 하였으며, 여러
          데이터 종류가 발생
        • 24 시간 365일 서비스를 해야 하는
          환경이 급증
        • 분산된 환경에 걸쳐 중요데이터 발생
          (복잡한 데이터 관리)
        • 복잡한 IT 환경에 적응하기 위해 보다
          빠르고 많은 기술력 습득이 필요
        • IT 환경 관리 비용의 쟁점화
        • IT 통합 관리 서비스 필요성 확대
        • 이기종의 시스템의 무분별한 확대
왜 통합 백업 솔루션이 필요한가?


         - LAN 에서 SAN으로 스토리지 환경이 변화
          된다.

         - SAN 환경에 Disk 와 Tape 이 혼합된다.

         - 다양한 H/W 환경이 전산환경을 지배 한다.

         - Multi-Operating System 을 지원해야 한다.

         - 지능적인 통합 관리가 필요하다.

         - 다양한 대용량 백업 장치를 지원할 수
          있어야 한다.

New San support strategy

   Current status:
   • Weakness in SAN coverage
   • Restricted Support in SAN
   • Support issues


       Goal:
   • Should work in any SAN supported by specific vendor
   • Ability to easily identify and isolate problems


   DP 5.0 offers two ways to support SAN solutions:
   • HP Solution (as offered by NSS)
   • 3rd party solution after successful test (DTT tool)
Device Test Tool

 •   utility used for testing the basic functionality of
     standalone SCSI devices

 •   using simplest command –cmdfile,

 •   includes two automation scripts with a set of commands.

 •   expects the device filename as an input using the –
     device option

 •   two commands required: cmdfile and type

1) Installation server does not support Dynix, SCO Unixware 7.1.1 client
      Installation methods (2)

•   New install script for local installation of Unix clients: omnisetup.sh
•   Applies only for non HP-UX 11.x and non Solaris Unix clients
•   omnisetup.sh [-source directory] [-server name]
                                     [-install component-list]
     - directory is the location where installation CD is mounted.
                             If not specified, current directory is taken.
     - name is an optional name of the cell server host.
     - component-list is a comma-separated list of component codes.
                                       No spaces are allowed, and core and
     core-integ components need not to be specified.
•   Located on CD for HP-UX, in directory LOCAL-DP-AGENT-INSTALL
•   Only ksh shell is supported
•   Detects and upgrades previously installed components
•   Checks and validates specified components
•   Client host can be imported automatically
    Limitations / drawbacks

• DP 5.0 CM and GUI not supported on HP-UX 10.20
• No DP 5.0 CD for HP-UX 10.20
• Installation server not supported on Windows XP
• ’Automatic disaster recovery’ module only installable on
Windows platform
• No Japanese, German and French localization
Migration aspects


  • No license migration required ! Only support contract migration
  • IDB structure unchanged, but new Velocis DB version
  • Direct upgrade is possible for:
     - OB II A.03.51 -> Data Protector A.05.00
     - OB II A.04.00 -> Data Protector A.05.00
     - OB II A.04.10 -> Data Protector A.05.00
  • Upgrade from other Omniback II versions:
     - first upgrade to OB II 4.x required
     - OBII 3.x -> OBII 4.x -> DP 5.0 (possible, but not
     recommended)
     - direct upgrade from OBII 3.x -> DP 5.10 planed with DP
     5.10
Upgrade considerations

     Requirements to consider:
 •   CM, IS and clients must have same version installed (DP 5.0)
 •   In MoM environment all CM must have same version installed (DP 5.0)
 •   Licenses of OB II A.03.x and 4.x still valid in DP 5.0
            no license migration needed
 •   Important: upgrade procedures are different on HP-UX, Solaris and
                Windows platform
       - on HP-UX and Solaris: first remove old, then install new binaries
           IDB and configuration data will not be removed
       - on Windows do NOT remove/uninstall old binaries !
           otherwise IDB and configuration data will be removed
 •   Upgrade order: 1. Upgrade cell manager and all installation servers
                     2. Upgrade all clients, can be done gradually
                     3. MA / Integration Agents must be upgraded before
                        start of any backup / restore
Upgrade scenarios (1)

     Upgrade from OBII A.04.x => DP A.05.00
 •   Standard upgrade procedure applies
 •   Upgrade consist of conversion to new Velocis DB version (2.0 -> 3.5)
 •   IDB data files will not be modified
 •   IDB upgrade started automatically after installation,
      no user interaction required
 •   SW install and remove utility is swremove / swinstall on HP-UX and
      MSI on Windows
 •   IDB upgrade very fast
 •   Upgrade status reported in upgrade.log file
Upgrade scenarios (2)

    Upgrade OBII 4.x CM on HP-UX 10.20 => DP 5.0 on HP-UX 11.x
•   DP 5.0 does NOT support CM and GUI on HP-UX 10.20
•   Upgrade procedure needs to incorporate upgrade of HP-UX to 11.x
•   Order of upgrade steps very important:
      1. Remove OBII 4.x binaries from HP-UX 10.20 CM (swremove)
      2. Keep IDB and configuration data untouched
      3. Upgrade system OS to HP-UX 11.x
      4. Install DP 5.0 binaries (using swinstall)
      5. Installation process automatically upgrades IDB

    - smaller size of catalog data send from BMA to SM
    - NDMP Agent supported on additional platforms
    - improved error handling/messages
    DP 5.0 - Enhancements


• Increased load balancing and device concurrency
   - DA per MA increased up to 32
   - Devices in parallel increased up to 32
• New version of Velocis database: version 3.5
   - Multi-thread capable - utilization of multi processor systems
   - Upgrade to Velocis 3.5 automatically with CM upgrade
   - Version change has no impact to customers
• Enhanced firewall support
   - port range definition per DP binary, e.g. for CRS, BSM, RSM,
   etc.
   - new omnirc variable: OB2PORTRANGESPEC
• Enhanced supportability - circular debugs
   - example: xomni -debug 1-99,c:20000

     DP 5.0 - Enhancements


•   Tape header display, read and verify
     - new CLI option: omnimlist -device <device_name> -header
     - checks medium header, displays medium header information
•   Tape sanity check
     - checks the header before tape eject after a backup
     - enabled by default, new option in global file: Ob2HeaderCheck
•   Tape quality statistics reported by SCSI log sense command
     - reads tape quality statistics before remover from drive
     - disabled by default, new option in global file: Ob2TapeStatistics
•   Detection of write-protected media (mechanical write protection)
     - MA is able to detect and handle write-protected media
     - read-only operations will be successful (e.g. list, verify, scan)
     - information displayed in GUI (media properties) and CLI (omnimm)
        DP 5.0 - Enhancements

•   Auto detection and device file creation for robotics on HP-UX
     - prerequisite: presence of drivers, e.g. sctl or schgr
•   Device cleaning without barcode support (windows only)
     - libraries w/o barcode support: user must configure cleaning slot
•   Device locking
     - devices will be locked during media management operation
•   Library sharing / locking
     - new global variable: EnableSCSIReserveRelease
     (default:disabled)
     - known problems with SCSI Reserve/Release can still occur
•   Simplified support of new devices
     - four new files: scsitab, mediaclass, NDMPtab, dataformat
     - can be updated via web
