Backup solution

Posted on 2012-08-15

Looking at a backup solution between 3 vendors.  Unitrends 713 Appliance , Symantec BackupExec 2012 / also the 3600 appliance with symantec, and  Appassure.  Pricing has already been compared for these. What I'm looking for now is some comments on what you would go with or what works better with what. Any issues with any of these?  We are running a mix of server 2003 - 2008, Linux, sharepoint 2010, exchange 2007, SQL 2008 R2, ESXI 5.0 Essentials, under 1tb of total backup storage. Looking to use the granular recovery for exchange and sharepoint also. We also would like an offsite option which all three provide.  If you have any of these in place or have used them I would appreciate any type of feedback positive or negaitive to help us in this decision process.

    Are you working with getting Backup for WIndows or Exchange .... i would say go for SYmantec, widely used by most organizations and very well known by engineer and extensive with WIndows\Exchange. Not sure though about Linux :(
