Fastest Backup to tape performance possible?

Recommended Posts

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....
