Best Practices: RDA with OST and the DR Series System

This topic introduces some recommended best practices for using RDA with OST operations with the DR Series system.

Setting client-side optimization

Client-side optimization (also known as client-side deduplication) is a process that can contribute to saving time performing backup operations and reducing the data transfer overhead on the network.

To configure dedupe/passthrough before the client makes a connection, you need to use the DR Series system command line interface (CLI).

You can turn client-side optimization On or Off by using the CLI commands, rda --update_client --name --mode. For more information about DR Series system CLI commands, see the DR Series System Command Line Reference Guide.

Configuring an LSU

You can configure a logical storage unit (LSU) as an OpenStorage Technology (OST) connection type container for data storage by using the DR Series system GUI. To configure an LSU as an OST connection type container, log in to the DR Series system and complete the following:

Navigate to the Containers page (in the Dashboard navigation panel).
Click Create to create a new container.
The Create New Container dialog is displayed.
In Container Name, enter a name for the container.
In Marker Type, select the None marker type.
In Connection Type, set the container type to Rapid Data Access (RDA).
In the RDA pane, set the RDA Type to Symantec OpenStorage (OST).
In Capacity, select either the Unlimited or Size options to set the capacity for the OST connection type container.
If you select Size, make sure to define the desired size in Gibibytes (GiB).
Click Create a New Container (or click Cancel to display the Containers page).
