General Capacity Principals to Consider
A good rule of thumb is to consider the total capacity you are using for files, applications and OS's that you want to protect, and add 50% to 100% more for your capacity requirements within the AIMstor Repository.
The number of snapshot views, retention, file versions, and application data (MS SQL, Oracle, etc.) will influence the total capacity you use for Repositories. For example, consider these 2 scenarios:
Example One: 2TB File System "real, live data" (File Servers, Laptops, apps plus OS, etc.) and a daily 2% change rate:
24 Fulls Retained, 90 Incrementals Retained = 2.4TB Capacity Repository requirement
Example Two: 2TB Application "real, live data" (SQL, Oracle, etc.) and a daily 2% change rate:
24 Fulls Retained, 90 Incrementals Retained = 3.1TB Capacity Repository requirement
