I am exploring offsite backup for a customer and would like to get everyone’s advice on a good solution. I have tried iBackup, Mozy, DataPreserve and a few others for customers but have never been happy with the end results.
I am looking to backup Server 2008 R2 with Exchange 2010. Active Directory and individual Exchange mailboxes. The office is closed from 6PM to 6AM so I can definitely configure any solution to backup during off hours so the throughput is not an issue. The initial backup will be done on a weekend as right now I have about 30GB of data that needs to be backed up.
My experience is that Mozy and iBackup are good for personal but do not handle servers very well and forget about Exchange. DataPreserve is a great solution but the company is very unstable and support is miserable.
Anyone have any good suggestions?
