Backup Dilema

724 Views
Last Modified: 2013-12-27
Hi, we are looking for a solution where we can backup large amount of data located on network SAN. This SAN does not have any native backup capability and Apple OS10.5 server is the only thing thats connected to it and mounts it as volumes. Apple is connected to it via Fiber. We have about 12 TB of data right now to backup. Obviously USB hard drives, NAS devices will not work. Tape drive Autoloader will, but I'm not exited about using them, as single tape failure in initial full set will corrupt the backup. Trying to find a solution of backing up to some other SAN on network (over fiber). Any experience with this? And what software do you recomend using. Because of the size we need an ability to run Full jobs, Incrementals. Also email notification or print out would be great.
