Data is written to tape in a series of fragments, which are separated with a logical element called a FileMark. NetBackup has a specific format for the fragments it writes, consisting of small blocks of data to represent the source of the following data (a list of backup ids). Following the list of backup ids is a much larger set of data blocks that contain the backup data itself. A single backup will consist of at least one fragment, and may be made up of thousands of fragments. As tape drive technology has advanced, the time required to write data has significantly decreased, while the time required to write a FileMark has remained about the same. For customers writing many small images, such as database transaction logs, this means that the maintenance tasks involved with writing a NetBackup image to tape now take a substantial amount of the time required to write the image.

When a tape drive receives a request to write a standard (synchronous) FileMark, it must first flush all buffered write data to tape before writing the file mark and reporting success, which can take 1 to 2 seconds to perform. It is possible to use a flag for the write filemark command to the tape drive, called the Immediate flag, that allows the write FileMark operation to be buffered (asynchronous) on the drive, in which case the operation only takes 3 ms, and does not require the drive to flush buffered data to tape.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Netbackup is useful for providing dedicated backup services but troubleshoot feature could be improved. Valuable Features:Easily integrated with Claude portal services.Improvements to My Organization:Netbackup is useful for providing dedicated backup services.Room for Improvement:From a technical point of view, all EMC products have to improve the troubleshoot feature like, log should be in human readable format. Instead of generic errors, they should elaborate a bit more.Use of Solution:Past 5 to 6 years.Deployment Issues:Easy to deploy.Stability Issues:Wrong integration is always the cause of unstable environment. We use clusters environment and EMC Procrustes have redundant parts . We have a stable environment.Scalability Issues:Not yet.Customer Service:4.5/5Technical Support:4/5Previous Solutions:I used Sympana commvault and CA arc serve. Both the products are good for small organisations but not up to the mark for enterprise level.Implementation Team:Through vendor team; try to just know how to fix the hardware and plug the networker cable. Rest of the things we had to do remotely.Other Solutions Considered:For enterprise level backup solution – No.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
