Backup Data Migration (NetBackup to NetWorker) Project for Major Saudi Bank


LOMAZZO, Italy, May 7, 2014 -- DSI Europe S.r.l. today announced the successful completion of a large on-site backup data migration project.

The customer was maintaining a large archive of over 250 LTO-3 cartridges with sensitive data under Symantec NetBackup. As part of the customer’s strategy to standardize on EMC hardware and software, the contents of the NetBackup tapes needed to be migrated to the EMC’s NetWorker platform. Data Strategies performed the migration task working closely with EMC and the customer’s staff.

Backup data consisted of Unix and Windows file systems and application backups created through agents for Microsoft SQL, Oracle and Lotus Notes. All unexpired data on NetBackup LTO-3 tapes was migrated to NetWorker 8 and was stored on LTO-5 cartridges. The target environment included an ADIC Scalar i500 Tape Library with 3 LTO-5 FC Drives and 133 Slots.

Data Strategies installed its off-line migration hardware platform at the Customer’s data center in Saudi Arabia and used its proprietary MediaGenie Proteus software suite for:
a) extracting (with on-the-fly de-multiplexing) NetBackup session fragments from the LTO-3 tapes;
b) restoring individual sessions to virtual clients;
c) creating NetWorker savesets on LTO-5 media.

MediaGenie Proteus is a proven off-line backup data migration software suite with multiple functionalities, including: generation of session level and file level catalogs from backup media; non-native restoring from backup tapes; selective data migration (backup data splitting) based on customer specified criteria; session cloning to higher capacity media and data migration from legacy backup formats to new backup formats (products). Supported backup products include: NetWorker, NetBackup, TSM, Simpana, BackupExec, ArchServ, DataProtector, etc. Specific support for backups of NAS filers such as NetApp, EMC Celerra, EMC Isilon, etc. is also available.
