Backup to disk over Fibre? NDMP?

Currently Being Moderated



we are currently doing our Backups to tape with NDMP and Backup Exec 2010 R3. IBM LTO5 tape drive is directly attached via FC to our filers. We get a pretty good throughput at around 5000MB/min.


Now we would like to do our backups to disk instead of tape. We tried this but the throughput is really bad. Around 1000MB/min. We noticed that the data is coming in via Ethernet. We installed a fibre card in our Backup server but now we are stuck how to proceed. Is there a way to have the data transfer between the server and the filers via fibre?


Best Regards,
