I would like so views and possible solutions to our current setup.
Our current backup solution uses tapes. Our server is acts as a DC 2003, exchange server and a file/print server. A staff member puts the 120GB tape every night and Arcserve manager backs up the server data, exchange, files & folders then in the tape is store in a fire proof safe until next week.
We have 8 tapes labelled Mon-Thurs and Fri1 Fri4. Arcserve does a few backup every night. I really dont like using tapes as Ive had problems in the past restoring data.
Our problem is we now need to backup more than 120GB and would like some possible solution.
Possible solution I can think of are
Upgrade to a higher tape drive and tape
Backup the data to another site. We have a remote office in Dublin which we could install a backup server at.
What are your view on each ??
