  • Using Amazon Snowball to Re-Seed a failed commcell
    Posted: 09-30-2016, 8:47 AM

    Hi there


    We've recently finished doing a DR test of not only our comcell ( is also our sole media agent) but the other production servers in our environment. Our production comcell has an auxcopy job pushing out recent backed-up data to S3 so that in the case of a critical failure of the server room we have a recent backup of the commcell database, and the backups. The thing that took the most time for us during the DR testing was having to download all the de-duplicated backup data back down.

    I've been reading up and found Simpana supports Amazon Snowball to seed an S3 bucket with local data. But is it possible to go the other way ? Is there a tried procedure to receive a snowball appliance and pull the data back in to a rebuilt media agent?


    thanks for any answers
