Case Study

One customer was experiencing a backup window of around 10 hours to secure their SQL Server data, using a mixture of database maintenance plans and copying data to NAS. Using iSCSI we are able to backup the 400GB SQL Server database in just over an hour (recording a constant 800Mbit transfer rate). Transaction Logs are backed up every 10 minutes directly to iSCSI allowing at most 10 minutes data loss in the event of a complete disaster.
