Can anyone know let me know the best backup performance to tape they have achived with retrospect 9.

 

Im running V8.2 using MacPro, SAS LTO5 + dual 4Gb fibre SAN source. Best I see is about 60MB/s using retrospect.

 

Evaluating Prestore + Bru on the same hardware I was seeing 120-140MB/s to tape.

 

Retrospect V8 IS the bottleneck.

 

Is V9 any faster?

With drives and backups getting ever larger, I've all but given up on retrospect as a future backup/archive platform.

 

And to think I have been using it since Mac os 8.6!

 

I would love to hear from the manufacturers about this one - but they have failed to respond on multiple occasions.

 

Its like they know something....

If you have million of tiny files to backup, the performance is much less than backing up a few large files of the same total size.

 

So the comparison with Prestore is useless until we know the test is done under identical conditions.
