We have 2 sites
One site has 7 servers
ISA/Websense, Exchange 30Gb, File 200Gb, Print, SQL 25Gb, Backup storage server and Terminal services
One has 4 servers
Exchange 20Gb, File 100Gb, Print, Backup Storage server
I want to get backup software which will let me backup these to disk - say 2 full backups (1 per month) and the associated incremental/diffs
I also want to backup once a month to tape and store the tapes offsite for a couple of years
And I also want 1 monthly backup and assocated omcremental to be stored at the remote site (10Mb link)
I want the monthly backups to run over a weekend and the incrementals run once a day after 6pm.
I also want the product to archive emails older than x months to the storage server and have it incorporated in backup.
I used to use Backup Exec when it was Veritas but got an outside comapny to provide new backup for us last year.
They chose Commvault 7 and without ranting, cant say it's been a good choice.
What products should I be looking at? And a reasonable explanation fow why too please.
