A customer currently has a multi-node EMC Avamar solution with eight active storage nodes. They are currently at 85% GSAN capacity and receiving capacity warning messages. The customer would like to purchase additional capacity for the system. What is a best practice for adding capacity?
Add two nodes
Add one node
No nodes can be added. Add a new Avamar system.
No nodes can be added. Migrate to a larger system.
A customer has difficulty keeping up with their restore requests on their existing backup solution. Currently each restore requires the backup team to engage and manually process each restore request. The customer wants the clients to be able to restore and browse their own data using only their account credentials. Which EMC solution meets the customer’s requirements?
NetWorker with VTL
NetWorker with Data Domain Boost
VMware Guest Backups
A customer has an Avamar system that has reached 100% of maximum capacity. The environment consists of a 16 active data node system. What can be done to decrease the utilized capacity?
Move clients to a new system with larger data nodes
Decrease retention times on backups
Add additional nodes to the current system
Increase the size of the existing nodes
You have suggested to a customer that a Data Deduplication Assessment A (DDA:A) would help them evaluate deduplication in their environment. What would you recommend after the completion of the DDA:A scan?
Schedule and run a File System Assessment
Map drives for the DDA:B scan
Rerun the DDA:A scan within one week of the first scan
Perform the DDA:A backup script
An EMC Avamar customer is unable to successfully complete a nightly backup of a large file server within their defined backup window. The server is a single quad core system with 2 GBs of RAM. The file system data is being stored on a RAID 5 SAN disk. Currently, the server has 7 million files totaling 1 TB of data spread across three volumes. The Avamar agent was installed and configured using the default settings. What should be recommended to increase the performance of the nightly backup?
Increase the size of the local file cache
Migrate the data volumes to RAID 1/0 disks
Increase the speed of the network connection
Increase the size of the local hash cache
A customer is considering an EMC Avamar backup solution. They want to know whether Avamar can provide the security benefit of data encryption between the clients and the Avamar server. What are the in-flight encryption considerations?
Encryption strength can be specified when configuring a backup group
An encryption option must be selected at installation time and impacts server resources
Some type of encryption, either medium or high, must be specified for each backup
Encryption must be selected at installation time and is the same for all clients
An existing EMC Data Domain customer is evaluating new backup software and hardware for their environment. Their current environment consists of a single data center along with several remote sites. The customer is interested in consolidating all backup hardware into their primary data center while still being able to do remote backups. In addition, they want the ability to perform backups directly to tape for certain applications in order to send the tapes offsite for long-term retention. The customer plans to keep their current Data Domain system as part of any new configuration. However, they want to look at options to optimize performance without adding additional infrastructure. The final requirement is that the entire solution be managed from a single unified interface in order to configure and track backup jobs. Which EMC solutions can address these requirements?
NetWorker with DD Boost and an integrated Avamar system
NetWorker with DD Boost along with remote storage nodes
Avamar with an integrated Data Domain system
NetWorker with DD VTL and an integrated Avamar system
A customer is currently running Data Protection Advisor. Over time, concerns have been expressed about performance degradation. After a complete review, you discovered that performance was being impacted due to data gathered by Collectors
being maintained with configuration data. What is the most likely reason for keeping these two types of data separate?
Dynamic nature and large size
Static nature and large size
Dynamic nature and small size
Static nature and small size
An EMC Data Domain customer has ordered two expansion shelves to increase the active tier storage capacity for backup. After successfully installing the new expansion shelves, the Data Domain GUI does not display the increased capacity. What is the reason for this issue?
Shelf Capacity licenses were not installed
Disk drives need to be reconfigured
Expansion Storage license was not installed
Active tier and Archive tier licenses are needed
A customer has an EMC Data Domain appliance that has reached 90% of maximum capacity. The customer does not want to purchase any additional storage. What will increase the average available capacity of the Data Domain appliance?
Decrease the backup retention period
Decrease the cleaning frequency
Increase the snapshot expiration period
Increase the number of streams
A potential customer is evaluating an EMC Avamar system as a backup solution. After initial sizing, they added a requirement to encrypt all backup data on the Avamar system. The original sizing documents indicated that the customer required 54 TB of storage capacity. What is the total amount of storage required to support the performance impact of the encryption?
Refer to the Exhibit.
A large mining company wants to implement collection replication using EMC Data Domain systems in multiple cities. They want to replicate data at the Rexburg site
to and from the Denver site. In addition, the company wants to replicate data at the Rexburg site to and from the Greeley site. How should the customer's design requirements be addressed?
Bi-directional replication can be used at two or more sites concurrently
Replication between Denver and Rexburg should be in one direction only
Replication between Denver and Rexburg is not supported
Bi-directional replication should be established between Greeley and Pueblo
Refer to Scenario 3
EMC NetWorker, using a VADP proxy, is backing up 12 virtual machines concurrently. What is the total recommended additional RAM needed on the proxy?
Refer to Scenario 3
When using EMC NetWorker and DD Boost, what are the recommended maximum concurrent backups for the VADP proxy server?
Refer to Scenario 1.
The company wants to replace their SRDF/A technology with an EMC solution that can satisfy all of the requirements stated by the CTO. Which technology should be used to replace replication SRDF?
