2-part backup software questions
Posted on 2006-07-13
Can somebody please recommend a good backup software? I need to back up a number of different things and I'm trying to find a software that does it all. I have a site with:
Win2k3 and 2k
Oracle db on win2k3 & 2k
possible MS sql server on win2k3 in the future (semi-important requirement)
possible linux in the future, (not an important requirement, but nice to have anyway.)
My problem is that the software I've researched, none of them handle all of my requirements. Most of the time, GW is not explicited supported which is a major requirement for this job.
Then again, I'm not completely sure on the groupwise backup process. I'm hoping once I understand it completely, it would help me make a better backup choice. The problem is, I've heard different answers from different people. One person says you need backup software that is gw compliant. Somebody else mentioned that with the gw tsa, any backup software should be able to read gw files. Can somebody please give me a correct answer?
Also any backup software suggestions? Thanks in advance.
