Part One or Two
One of the interesting things I have discovered since I have been talking with so many HPC customers is that the term “backup” is seldom used. You might ask if they aren’t doing traditional backups, then why would we, a backup solutions provider, want to talk to them. Well, first you need to fully understand the difference between backup and archive. Archive is a word you will hear more often in the HPC and M&E environments, especially if there is data in excess of the petabyte range and large files that aren’t accessed frequently but need to be kept indefinitely.
