In need of disaster recovery solution.
Posted on 2006-05-02
I work with a school district and they are in need of a new backup solution. They have 2 Windows NT 4.0 servers and 4 brand new Windows 2003 servers. Between these there is a lot of critical data... Exchange 2003, Healthmaster Nurse Software, Follett Library Automation, MMS Generations Attendance suite.
I believed that the hard drives in the servers came in mirrored, but I do not think this is so now. Right now we are doing manual backups of the data to another server, just sort of copying and pasting.
I would like to really have a NAS drive and setup Acronis True Image Server to create an image every night of each server... some peace of mind is what I'm aiming for.
Does anybody have any recommendations as far as a brand of NAS, or technique for backing something like this up?
