Intelligent Image Option
The Intelligent Image Option increases
backup performance and reduces CPU processes by mapping the metadata
of a local file system and copying the volume as a single file to
the storage device. Intelligent Image Option seamlessly integrates
into Backup Exec operations and allows full volume or individual
file restores from full, incremental, and differential backups.
Intelligent Image Option supports servers with thousands of smaller
files that require fast backups with minimal impact to system resources.
Backup Exec RAIDirector, which supports RAID levels 0,1, 0+1, and 3, provides increased performance and fault tolerance of existing tape hardware while dramatically shrinking the backup window for a fraction of the cost of hardware-based solutions. Ideal for offsite storage, logically linking multiple independent SCSI tape devices provide flexibility for mirroring, striping, and striping with parity. In addition, exclusive RAID stacking allows for mirrored, striped sets.
