Off-Site Backup or Replication for a database on SCO Unix
Posted on 2004-10-13
I am looking for a solution to enable off-site backup, or ideally a redundant, replicated off-site server to provide fault tolerance for a database running under SCO Unix. The database is a proprietary one from a 3rd party vendor who does not offer any solution for this. If there is a way to replicate the entire server, that would be ideal, so that we could fail-over in the event of an outage. There is a point-to-point T1 available between both sites, and it should be more than enough bandwidth to handle replication in real-time or incremental nightly backups based on the amount of data change each day.
This project is in conjunction with similar off-site backup/replication implementation for Windows 2003 and Exchange 2003 servers, for which we have already found a solution, but if there is an application which can handle all three in a Windows environment, we would defintiely be interested in that as well.
