Hello, I have a question as we are trying to renew/get new licences for Backup Exce and we were reading some articles ( Details of the Capacity Usage Calculation within Backup Exec, Veritas™ Capacity Assessment Tool) and still have some questions.
We have used the tool (where I am gonna add the attachment in the end) and states our total TeraBytes are 0.37 (since it doesn't include SQL DB, I could say a total of 0.4 TB, and with growth prevision we are talking about a 0.5TB total).
With our current solution, we have between DB and Files 219GB full daily backups (monday through Saturday) and 40 GB added on Incremental backups. Also we add around 300 GB on a monthly backup from our Cluster from VM.
Since documentation is not clear on the tiers if the 1TB, 2-5TB, etc, if they are on a monthly total TB backed up or yearly backed up amount we are unsure which to request (since we are considering several solutions from our local provider). We would like to know the following:
- Are the TB tiers on a montlhly basis or annual basis? (I did understand though they are calc'd on Full Backups done)
- Considering the information given, which would be the recommended tier to get?
Thanks and best regards.
