I like NetApps for certain applications, NBU is not one of them.
My opinion is that I prefer direct attached storage (or nearly direct) for
NBU, NFS doesn't qualify in either camp.
I'm sure its been done and done successfully, I'm just not a fan of it.
My two cents.

Subject: [Veritas-bu] /usr/openv placement
I am contemplating putting the entire /usr/openv partition on a NetApp
filer. My reason is that currently my images directory is 68gb's, and
this is not yet including the new filer I am adding nor the 5 Novell
servers that will be added in the next week or so. Once that happens I
will be looking at much more then 68gb's for images. I do not want to
have to waste time backing up this data every time a scheduled backup
finishes, plus it wastes tape when I'm sending them offsite every week.
What I'm planning is to have all the NBU stuff on the filer and
snapmirror that data to a remote site. This way I can recover
completely to another site in case of total disaster, or I can
snapmirror the entire structure back here if needed, or I can just copy
back the images I need. My WAN pipe between these sites is big enough
that the difference in recovering from an offsite db backup and
snapmirroring the entire structure back is negligable.
Any thoughts, opinions, experiences?
