ECIUG '06: Enterprise Backup Development

Fangmin Wang, Ryerson University
  • talked about how at Ryerson they use a third-party backup program
  • uses Backup API (Application Programming one piece of software communicates with another)
  • went with alternate method becuase III's standard backup method is not very convenient...labour intensive, routine task...and Ryerson's IT dept. has a huge IBM "tape robot"
  • on the iug list there's a linux verion of the backup script (contributed by Mike Lynch)
  • they use the Millenium tape back up as a secondary back up
