I am in process of buying a DL385 server for ESX 3 server, also I am getting an MSA 30 with about 2TB worth of space. On the ESX server I will our file server, exchange and few other server as VM machines. The question I have now does anyone have a similar type of environment and if you do what backup solutions do you use for the ESX server.
I have been looking at ESX ranger, ARCserver and a few others but my biggest problem is that I would like to be doing a backup to tape directly instead of backup to disk and then to tape, also backup of the exchange mailboxes, do any of these solutions do a live backup of exchange? by the looks of it none of them do.
