The Last Resort: Streamer Technolgy Overview

Test Scenario: Backing Up 28.4 GB Of Usage Data

We poured about 30 GB of mixed data onto the test computer’s hard drive. Essentially, this is our pool of benchmarks and test programs, which total about 52,000 files.

Motherboarrd AOpen AX4PE Max, 845PE chipset
Memory 512 MB DDR400/PC3200, Buffalo Tech.
Controller i845E UltraDMA/100-Controller (ICH4) Adaptec 39320-R, Ultra320 SCSI
Hard Drive IBM IC35L060AVVA07
Graphics Card ATI Radeon SDRAM, 32 MB
Network 3Com 3C905TX, PCI, 100 MBit/s

Arkeia, BrightStor, Dantz or Veritas can combine most streamers with the established backup solutions. For the purposes of our short test, we used the software Retrospect from Dantz.
