I have recently been assigned to administer our backup operations enterprise wide. We have purchased a SAN and have allocated 1TB of space for backup data. We are currently using Symantec Backup Exec 11d. We are thinking about dumping BE in favor of EMC's Networker product. It is believed that the move to the EMC product will allow us to better utilize our SAN, which was purchased by EMC as well.
My question is - Is it worth unloading BE for EMC networker? The EMC networker sales team have pitched a data duplication piece called Avamar - does BE have a compliment to this?
