  • Year: 2012 Backup Recovery Systems and Architecture (Elective paper: 6thSemester CSE and IT UG and 4thSemester MCA Programs )Prerequisites:To understand the content and successfully complete this course as student must havea suitableknowledgebase/skill set. The student must have an understanding of: Computer architecture Operating systems Networking, including TCP/IP, CIFS and NFS protocols Host virtualization conceptsOverview:The course focuses on the concepts and technologies used in Backup and Recovery environments. Participants willlearn about backup and recovery theory, including backup methods, planning and key terminology.Course Objective:Upon completion of this course, you should be able to: Describe Backup and Recovery terminology Describe Backup and Recovery operations Describe various types of storage systems, concepts and components Identify major sources of backup data Describe the different types of backup storage media, their advantage and disadvantage Examine the steps involved in planning for backup and recoverySyllabusThe Modules are designed to support the course objectives. The following modules are included in this course:Unit I: Theory • Identify the reasons for backup and recovery • Define common backup and recovery terms • Identify the components of the client/server backup server architecture • Describe the flow of data in client/server backup and restore operationsUnit II: Information Storage Concepts • Describe disk drive components • Describe the major components of a storage system • Distinguish between storage systems and intelligent storage systems • Describe the various RAID levels and how data is protected by each level • Describe the components of an intelligent storage system • Explain the benefits of direct-attached storage • Describe SCSI architecture
