Pinned topic Backup Architecture recommendation

‏2013-01-29T15:10:45Z |
Hi, I was wondering if anyone had put together an architecture to include tape storage for backups.
I am trying to design a solution of mixed Power and x86 compute nodes which will incoporate TSM for backups.
Looking at the redbook it seems to recommend LAN-Free backups, but the expense of this is that you lose redundancy as 1 switch module seem to become dedicated to the tape library.

Has anyone got any thoughts:
