One of the strategies discussed on the Roadshow is using Jungledisk to map a drive letter in the cloud storage (e.g., Rackspace or AWS). And while I gave you the UP and DOWN Robocopy scripts, one member of the Roadshow Facebook group asked for more detail.
So, I set up a sample data store with just over 2 GB of data and walked through every piece of the process:
- Copy data to the cloud storage
- Install Jungledisk agents on all desktops
- Make the cloud storage the primary data store
- Backup the cloud storage to the local machine in a new "companybackup" directory
The checklist documents are:
R1 – Robocopy to JungleDisk Checklist
R2 – Jungledisk Desktop Setup
The videos also mention handouts 19 and 24 from the zipped handouts you should already have.
Thanks to Brian for posting the request.
