Testing 123 - SD CHI 08

Cover
It would be nice if backup was a "set it and forget it" operation, but the reality is that it's a complex operation with dependencies and enough possible points of failure to keep a storage manager up at night. This session will delve into a range of issues related to backup testing, highlight some of the most common testing oversights, and provide a template for testing that attendees can adapt or tweak for use in their own shops.

Some of the issue this session will cover include:

  • How to set up a real-world test that won't bring your storage shop to its knees
  • Troubleshooting failed backup operations
  • Tips for testing the restore process
  • How much can the burgeoning crop of backup management and reporting tools help to fine tune a backup environment
