Let’s unveil the flexibility of Storegrid Deployment.
Deployment in Single Laptop / Desktop.
Peer-Peer(P2P) or Grid Deployment .
Dedicated Backup Server Deployment (Client-Server) .
Type of Deployment
Components of STOREGRID
Client Only: This Computer will backup on to other computers. Other Computers will not backup to this Computer
Server Only: Other Computers will backup to this computer. This Computer can not backup to other Computers.
Client and Server: Allow the computer to backup on to other Computers and other Computers to backup to this computer as well
Replication Server: Other Store Grid Backup Servers can Replicate their data to this Server for Redundancy.
Deployment in single Laptop / Desktop You have a single Laptop. You want to take Data backup on External USB Hard Disk through StoreGrid ? How do you configure StoreGrid ?
Installation & Configuration Step 1 : install StoreGrid as a Windows service. Here define to start Storegrid service as Local system account . Step 2 : install as “Client and Server” and click next . Step 3 : By default StoreGrid takes the machine name as Identity and “Default Group” as Group name. Keep it as it is. Step 4 : Continue with the wizard and finish the installation. Step 5 : Change “StoreGrid Server’s Backup Storage Location as “G:” and click next. (Here “G” is External HDD Drive) Done now you can create schedule for Backup from “ Backup ->Add Backup Schedule” option. Step 6 : Now configure Schedules as per requirement.
Deployment in Peer-to-Peer Mode
c) Peer to Peer :
StoreGrid can help you use the unused disk space in the system to form a ' trusted peer to peer ' backup solution for everyone in your small network.
This is not the ideal deployment for a medium sized company as:
Storage is distributed, and will need to be separately managed & monitored Disk based storage costs are quite low, anyway!
Client Server Mode Windows Vista Windows XP Client Server Mode Window Server 2003 running Exchange / SQL Client Server Mode
Planning for Peer to Peer Deployment Backup for previous Network Diagram: Following 4 systems connected in Network. Their data backup scenario is as below. NOTE: In Storegrid backup scenario the “machine name” should be unique. If any machine crashed then when the machine will be built again, for disaster recovery the machine name should be same as before . Machine Name Operating System Backup Role Storegrid Component User 1 WinXP This Systems will keep backup to “user 2 ” and store backup from “User3” Client & Server User 2 Win 2K3 This Systems will keep backup to “User 1 and store backup from “server” Client & Server User 3 Win2K This Systems will keep backup to “User 2 ” and store backup from “User 4” Client & Server Server WinXP This Systems will keep backup to “User 1” and store backup from “user 1” Client & Server
Installation and configuration
Peer to Peer
Step 1: Install Storegrid on all machines – in ‘Client + Server’ Mode (you will be prompted during installation)
Step 2: Change the default Data Path .
Step 3: Apply License Key to each installation
Step 4: If the machines are in the same subnet, they will automatically discover each other. Otherwise, the backup server needs to be manually added (by the client).
Step 5 : Now configure Schedules as per requirement.
installation and configuration is so easy… isn’t it ?
Deployment in Client-Server Mode
StoreGrid installations can run on : Windows 2000 Server, 2003 Server, Small Business Server, Linux, FreeBSD, Windows 2000, XP, Vista & Mac OS X
