Using Zmanda With Sun Gear?

Thomas Hanvey (Sun Microsystems) and Paddy Sreenivasan (Zmanda) show how to quickly configure and deploy Zmanda Recovery Manager for MySQL, using the Sun Storage J4400 array for disk storage.

The article also explains how to configure a zpool and the ZFS file system. In this scenario, ZRM is running on a Sun Fire X4200 M2 server with the Solaris 10 8/07 OS.

For more tips on using Sun gear with Zmanda products, see these BigAdmin articles by by Thomas Hanvey (Sun Microsystems) and Dmitri Joukovski and Ken Crandall (Zmanda):
