Archive all Changes to Files for 100 years
Posted on 2010-08-12
I have 310 GBs of TIFF and JPEG images and a 2 GB sql Database that I need to preserve. I need to make a full backup and then I need to record all changes (overwrite, delete, modify, add, etc...) and keep all revisions of a file forever (well only 100 years, but might as well be forever).
So, If a user deletes or overwrites a file, or changes a file and I don't notice for 20 years, I need to be able to view/recover the deleted/modified file. I would prefer a solution that does not use tape.
Dell / CommVault suggested a server with CommVault software and 4 TB's of disk space for $22,000. I am hoping for some suggested software that will help manage and accomplish my goal with a more reasonable cost.
The best solution would be user friendly and would allow me to select a file and then see every action that has happened to the file over the life span of the file.
Has anyone dealt with this type of solution before and what software did you use?
