I very new to CommVault and I would like to know a few things. Here is our scenario:
We have (1) Media Agent running as a VM on Nutanix Hypervisor. The majority of our servers are mixed VMs on AHV (Windows VMs) and VMware (Linux VMs). The MA and the VAProxy resides on the AHV
The current Disk Library is inside Nutanix mounted as DAS on the MA.
We are thinking of configuring a Physical Server (Re-purpose a HP DL380 G9) that would be as a the new Media Agent. buying hard drives but considering a more cost effective approach.
Having to plan a new MA as Physical server and possibly configuring Physical hard drives attached to it as the new Disk Library. We are planning to use
- 10K Raid 1 for the OS | 300GB Disks
- 400GB SSD Raid 1 for the DDB | Same size as the current but not SSD nor 15K | is this oK enought?
- Raid 5 parity + 1 spare
> Can we use Lower RPM Disk Drives for the Disk Library? 10K or 7.2K (Prices on SSDs are very high)
and is there a documentation on how to make these transision as the Disk Lib is on a Virtual Server and now being moved to Physical?
The current MA has just one drive for the Disk Library and is at approx 24TB
Sorry for too much information but any ideas would point to a more solid planning and implementation.
Thanks a lot.
