The objective of this paper is to describe how to deploy Amanda Enterprise 3.0 from Zmanda on OpenSolaris 2008.11 OS on a Sun Fire X4500 system using ZFS file systems, and to show how Amanda performs.
In particular, the paper will demonstrate how Amanda Enterprise takes advantage of Solaris ZFS snapshot technology to improve overall backup performance.
Note: In this scenario, the Sun Fire X4500 server acted as the backup server, while a Sun Fire X4200 server acted as the backup client.
