2 Storage Management Vision in SBS 2008 Server Backup Storage Management Tools and Features Questions

3 SBS 2008 aims to provide a comprehensive data protection from disasters (fire or theft), system failures (disk crash), or data losses (virus attacks, fat finger deletes) Storage management features such as Move Data Folders, Quota Management, Shared Folder Management provide users with simple tools to manage storage and data Prevention better than the cure Goal is to be prescriptive by providing data protection best practices and tools that aid it

4 Windows Server Backup (WSB) is a robust new data protection utility that replaces Windows NT Backup WSB has been rebuilt from ground up with a goal of solving the backup needs of Small Business Customers. Focus is on Simplicity, Reliability and Performance Summary Simplified management and configuration through SBS 2008 administration console Greatly enhanced performance with low server footprint. This allows multiple daily and incremental backups for more restore points System Recovery functionality – complete solution for disaster recovery Bare Metal Restore to similar or different hardware Typical recovery times are ~30 minutes Application Data Recovery support Windows SharePoint Services, Exchange, and SQL System State Backup and Recovery Command line only Supports rotational schema for backups between multiple disks Does not support tape media



7 Allows moving server data stores Exchange SharePoint WSUS repository (for Windows updates) User Shares Folder Redirection target Focus on Robustness and Simplicity Wizard allows data to be moved only to internal drives Validates data and application for move Move tasks are transactional Resets to original configuration if task fails Move data is scriptable Uses PowerShell Commandlets Get information about application data using > Get-SBSDataStore Exchange Move application data to a new drive using > Move-SBSDataStore Exchange D:\

8 Shared folder management Create and manage shared folders on server View and monitor status of shared folders on server Folder Redirection Allows administrator to set Folder Redirection for specific users or groups Allows redirection of specific folders on client machines Quota management Uses File Server Resource Manager from Windows Server 2008 Provides alerts and threshold notifications

9 Server Storage Configuration App/user data should be placed separately from OS/critical volumes Separate your application binaries from data Backup size for enabling System Recovery and System State Protection is reduced In case of disk failure, you have isolated the system from data If data volume fails, OS is available to aid in volume/app recovery If OS volume fails, a System Recovery only without repartitioning disks will get server up without data loss or roll back Data with high I/O should be placed in separate disk spindles to improve performance Backup Disk Configuration Backup disk should be at least 1.5 times the combined storage capacity of the volumes included in the backup Create recovery disk and keep offsite for DR scenarios Offsite storage and periodic rotation of backup disks Backup multiple times a day ensures more restore points Storing backups offsite ensures recovery from disaster Periodic rotations ensures more recent copies stored offsite

10 Partner Profile Mytech Partners, Inc. Minneapolis, MN 17 employees 186 active customers SMB (generalist), Financial Services and Manufacturing Solution focus areas: Compliance MSPP Level: Gold Certified Partner TAP Customer Profile Premier Marine 200 Employees (50 computer users) Business Focus: Custom Pontoon Manufacturer Key Pain Points: Data not centralized and Mobile work access How will SBS 2008 help: Use of WSS for collaboration Exchange 2007/RWW for remote worker

11 Mytech\Premier Pontoon experience with SBS 2008 The number one benefit for both Premier and Mytech is the ability for Premier to now handle most of the daily administration of their infrastructure. This has opened opportunities for Mytech to bring value and solutions to other areas of the business What key technical issues would you like to highlight for the audience around this feature area? SBS 2008 finally address the needs of LOB apps correctly. Enhanced RWW experience, Mobility, TS Application Mode Installation and Management tools improved Microsoft has improved the SBS product, look for ways to leverage the technology to grow your business (i.e., repeatable, predictable installs) Start practicing migrations, develop methodology – TODAY! Next steps Get public beta early, learn the product, and start test migrations Start exploring with your client how they can leverage new features


13 On top of Windows Backup Block Level backups based on VSS Backup to external USB/firewire devices Internal drives (not recommended) E-SATA (shows as internal drive) Target volume can only be used for backup Device will be formatted Drive letter will be removed Backup includes All critical volumes You can exclude non-critical volumes All applications Sharepoint, SQL, Exchange System State

14 Using native Windows Backup From GUI or WBADMIN Restore individual files or folders Restore application data No granularity provided Exchange will restore all Exchange storage groups Same for SQL and Sharepoint Bare Metal Restore booting from DVD Manual restore using wbadmin from WinRE

15 No GUI option System State is part of the critical volume backup, too To create one Wbadmin start systemstatebackup To restore one Wbadmin start systemstaterecovery Much bigger than in 2003

16 Free disk space check Shared folder management Quota management through FSRM Storage tasks Move Exchange Server Data Move Windows SharePoint Services Data Only the MDF Move users shared data Move users redirected documents data Move Windows Update repository All moves are transactional Move Data wizards are available as PowerShell CMDLETS OEM and VAP Runnable post-setup through a setup hook
