At the moment, i have a dilemma for my company backup solution/disaster recovery
We have one server which acts as DC/Exchange/File/Print
Current Data size total: approx 600-700 GB
Weekly backup tape goes for offsite.
No Bare metal restore strategy
My LTO3 tape can't fit all those data.
My thought are:
1. LTO3 autoloader..
My dilemma are:
1. If i buy LTO3 autoloader, am i going to have a problem to perform Bare Metal Restore?
At the moment, i'm planning to purchase acronis backup and recovery advanced server with "universal restore" option to test it. Not sure any good. any suggestion?
2. With the E-sata, i assume It has any kind of enclosure with multiple HDD/hot swappable so that i can pull the HDD and do an offsite backup??
3. for the speed, i think esata is faster??
Any input for pro and cons please?? any recommendation for bare metal restore software to dissimilar hardware for DC/exchange???
