comment Enterprise grade file sharing
Curious if you guys still use these products? I constantly need to send out 10-35GB files to multiple large companies (with large pipes), so speed is a concern. We use to use DigiDelivery (now Aspera Faspex). It worked well, and the UDP client was blazing fast, but it's expensive!

comment Bacula & Multiple Tape Devices, and so on
I would advise backing up to disk storage first as that will always be the fastest... then let your copy jobs spin to tape so you can have two streams running at once... else all of your jobs will queue up while one drive is used as the source... tape to tape copies will be slower as well

comment Small / mid-size business backup solutions?
I realize that this was a loaded question to begin with and was more born out of frustration with costs and overly complex software for my needs... thanks for your input though

comment Bacula & Multiple Tape Devices, and so on
Are you first backing up to fast disk storage and then having cv copying to tapes? Ideally, you would first backup to fast disk storage, and then spin off copies to tape so you could have two streams writing to two drives on the same job at once.. since the disk storage is the source... If not, your copies will be using one drive as the source and the other for copies which would grind things to a halt... I may just be confused but thought I would ask.

comment Small / mid-size business backup solutions?
thanks.. and I know everyone will have an opinion... just looking for some products/ideas to research. As for DR... VDR is a tool from vmWare that backs up to a file store (deduped) using scheduling and snapshot retention policies. I rsync VDR's backend store to a file server that has daily, weekly and monthly storage policies... I am not rsyncing the clients themselves. VDR quiesce's the clients before the snapshot

comment where Redirect permanent rule need to be add
What version of Apache are you using? Where did you put your Rewrite Directives (e.g., in a vhost or somewhere in httpd.conf)?

You can log your rewrites to see what is happening: RewriteLog /var/log/apache2/rewrite.log and on the next line RewriteLogLevel 9 Then restart apache2 and tail -f /var/log/apache2/rewrite.log, visit the site and see what is being rewritten. Just be sure to disable the logging on a production site when you are done.

comment where Redirect permanent rule need to be add
For rewrite try: RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !on and on the next line something like RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.yourdomain.com%{REQUEST_URI} [QSA,R=301,L] QSA means 'append query string', the R=301 means Redirect (Moved permanently) and the L means Last.. as in stop processing rules here. Those two lines should redirect any traffic to https

rewrites are much more powerful.. however they are also more complex (but well worth the effort if you are a sysadmin). Without mod_rewrite, your Redirect statement should go in your httpd.conf file (in your virtual host block if you have one). Put it above your DocumentRoot directive if that makes it easier. You will need to restart apache for the changes to take affect.

comment Esxi with iSCSI SAN slows down with many multiple VMs running
Are you bonding or doing some sort of link aggregation? I am not familiar with freenas, but I have run into problems with different iscsi stacks not playing well together. Specifically, under load, I had an openfiler iscsi nas corrupt vm's. Also, the 'Route based on IP hash' commonly trips people up when configuring link aggregation.
