I’m thinking of using restic to back up some servers which deal with fairly large datasets.
The total amount to be backed up would be about half a petabyte, with us adding a few hundred gigabytes more each day.
The underlying storage would be a Oracle ZS4-4 appliance, serving via SFTP. Alternatively, if sftp would be a major bottleneck I could run the REST server if that would be faster — but only if I can somehow get a Solaris 11 restic binary. Or I could mount over NFSv4 but I’d greatly prefer not to.
Anyone have any thoughts on this? What kind of performance should I expect at these volumes?
