A bit of a Friday top 10 list here. What do you think is nirvana when it comes to integrating target deduplication devices with a backup application? What do you want?

Reply with your own ideas if you like. Reach as far as you want. I don’t care if it can’t be built is 6 months, I am interested in the ideal end state for this game. Tell me I am deluded if that suits your fancy.

What do you think?

Here is mine:

1) Complete catalog consistency with device replication.

2) Application initiated device replication (policy based initiation of replication activities).

3) Ability to “export” replicated catalog and data across master servers (so I can usefully replicate to a separate master server’s geography).

4) Ability to use appliance as a repository for source deduplicated data.

5) Complete set of filters for all backup data sources (Microsoft, Oracle, DB2, SourceOne, etc.)

6) Many to one, one to many, star and multi-hop replication–all directed by policy from your backup application.

7) Deduplicated target embedded storage node/media server code so that it can directly mount storage (LAN free backup).

8) Complete path to tape and export of deduplicated data to tape in deduplicated format (so that you would need 10 TB of tape to back up a 10 TB appliance).

9) Can be used as a target for LAN-free from Vsphere, with policy direction from the backup application.

10) Open support for target appliance as a target for NDMP from Celerra and NetApp–and BlueArc and anybody else who wants to join the fun.
