changing the way we do backups
Posted on 2006-10-31
Currently we have 3 x LTO drives backing up
a SQL cluster
and Exchange Cluster and a couple of file servers
we will be trebling in size soon on all fronts, is it just a case of buying more LTO drives or would you suggest alternative methods?
we use Backup Exec 10d currently installed on a DC the Intranet server and a file server, would like to move them all to a "back up" server.
what about backing up to disk, Microsofts Data protection server looks tempting but no knowledge of it.
we currently have about 700 gigs of data altogether tis could well hit 2 tb in the next 6months be it exchange sql or files.
would love a small recovery window too idealy the ability to get the stuff 2 hours old from tape of disk.
windows 2003 and mostly dl380 servers..
cost not an issue if it works well.
