PDF Version Chapter In some environments a simple design may suffice, but in strategiee complex environments careful planning must be done commvaukt ensure data is properly protected and the CommCell environment can properly scale to meet future requirements. Section III of this book will take multiple approaches using real world scenarios to assist in the proper design and implementation of storage policy and client configurations.
There are three phases to designing and implementing a proper solution: Careful planning in this step will make it easier to build or modify policies and subclients.
The objective is to determine the basic structure required to meet protection objectives.
commvahlt Modifications can later be made to meet additional requirements. Three separate chapters will be dedicated to the Planning and Design Phase: Basic Planning Methodology which focuses on generic guidelines to building storage policies and subclients. This chapter will introduce protection matrix tables and how to use them to plan storage policy and subclient designs.
Technical Planning Methodology which focuses on technical requirements for providing a basic design strategy. This chapter will focus on library and data path configuration with an emphasis on Simpana deduplication.
Content Based Planning Methodology which takes a comprehensive end-to-end approach taking into consideration all aspects of business and IT requirements as well as integrating multiple technologies for a complete solution. This chapter will also introduce risk assessment which will be expanded on later in this section. Although there will be some redundant information in each of these chapters it is recommended to go through.
Each section will focus on different commvaylt of design and. The Build Phase will focus on configuring storage policies, policy copies, and subclients. Proper implementation in this phase is based on proper planning and documentation from the design phase.
There will be 2 chapters dedicated to the build phase: This chapter also has a series of tables listing all storage policy and policy copy options and detailed explanations and use cases for each option. This chapter also has a series of tables detailing subclient options with detailed explanations and use cases.
Since different conecpts subclients will have different options available, it would be impractical to explain every possible option so this chapter focuses on the most common settings for subclient configurations.

There will be two chapters dedicated to the modification phase: This section not only covers generic modifications but also details methods to improve specific systems such as virtual environment, databases, and file server backups. Risk Assessment which focuses on a multitude of technologies both CommVault based and 3 rd. This is a very important aspect of data protection since changing technologies, features, or options may solve a problem but it could cause other problems.
It is important to note that The Design-Build-Modify approach is a cyclical process since an environment is always changing. Not only is this important for data growth and procedural changes, but it also will allow strwtegies to modify your CommCell environment and protection strategies based on emerging technologies. This will provide greater speed and flexibility for managing protected data as our industry continues to change at a rapid pace.
In each of these chapters extensive use is made of charts for documenting environments and storage requirements. These desigb can be used as a basis for building your own charts specific to your needs.
A shorthand notation system is used to represent various settings and options available in the Simpana product suite. The chapter CommCell Notation details all of the shorthand notation used in the following chapters. In my experience using CommVault I have come across a number of customers who have attempted to document their CommCell environments. Some documentation has been very well thought out.
When we began to design conceots CommVault Storage Management training course, it was a high priority for us to design a methodology for implementation and a way to notate key configurations.
I would like to thank everyone who shared their documentation methods with me which inspired me to work out the notation. Proper design strategies can be based on the following key aspects of data protection:.
Meeting media management requirements. The two primary methods for designing storage policy solutions are technical based and content based. This approach is generic in nature and is designed for CommVault engineers and administrators who are looking for basic guidance without getting too technical in design and implementation. It provides generic desifn charts which can be used as a basis for documenting a CommCell environment. The basic design methodology focuses on the following cocnepts areas:.

Requirements for custom content subclients. Retention requirements for contents. Confepts requirements for specific data types. This approach is specifically for those who are primarily concerned with performance and other technical design aspects.
There is emphasis on library design considerations and Simpana deduplication scaling and configuration. A basic case study is provided with a simple environment.
Data from the protection matrix tables is used to assess deduplication scalability requirements, data path configuration, and the use of global deduplication policies. The technical planning methodology focuses stgategies these key areas:. Minimum number of policies required for implementation. The content based approach is a comprehensive end-to-end approach that focuses on business data, its value, and best methods of protecting the data.
This will require the most effort but will provide for the best design as well as the most flexibility to modify and scale the environment. Protection matrix charts will be expanded to include business and IT classifications, projected data growth, and priority level.
Additional charts will be used for gap analysis to assess windows and media management requirements.

It will also provide various technologies and Simpana features that can be used to shrink the gap. Identify and classify components of each business system as business or IT. Gather technical statistics for data location, dependencies, volume, projected growth …. Simpana specific configurations to meet requirements.
The build phase focuses on storage policy and subclient designs. These chapters contain steps for implementation and reference tables for settings and options for storage policies and subclients.
The flowcharts on the following pages illustrate the basic flow process to implementing storage policies. Basic procedures for determining storage policy settings based on library. There is no one size fits all methodology for designing and configuring a CommVault environment.
For many it is more of an art than a science comvmault administrators and engineers use experience and intuition for proper implementation and configuration. The following chapters will approach policy design as more of a science providing specific methodology for proper design. The level of detail explained may or may not be the best solution for your environment. The balance of performance, media management, data retention, and ease of administration must be considered throughout the design and implementation process.
This section will describe several different methods concetps protecting data. It is designed to provide in-depth explanations and solutions for the most complex environments. But before overanalyzing and over-architecting the CommVault environment, use this one simple rule: If rules 2 — 4 are being satisfied then there is really no reason to change anything.
A complex environment leads to more complex problems. Data protection requirements MUST be met. Though it is true the only reason we protect data is to recover it, if you are not meeting your windows then you are not protecting data.
You cannot recover something that never finished backing up so ensure protection windows are strategids met. In the following sections methods to improve performance will be discussed. Performance always starts with an adequately designed physical environment. Before tweaking CommVault software to improve performance, ensure that Clients, Media Agents, and networks are scaled appropriately.
In an ideal world data would simply be preserved forever. With the dropping conceps of disk storage and deduplication, most data can be retained longer.
As with anything this comes at a price. The best way to approach media management is to ensure the business end understands your capabilities and limitations for preserving data.

Although you understand the capabilities and limitations of your storage, the non-technical people may not. Provide basic guidance and education so they better understand what you and the Simpana product suite are capable of doing. You may not have the power to make the final decisions but you do have the power to influence the decision process. When designing a CommCell environment focus should always be placed on how data will be recovered.
Does an entire server need to be recovered or only certain critical data on the server require recovery? What other systems are required for the data to be accessible by users?
What is the business function that the data relies on? What is the associated cost with that system being down for long periods of time?
