I work for a IT consulting firm that has around 30 or so employees. We've been around for 20 years and we've always used Symantec BackupExec. We also have experience with Microsoft's DPM, Replay and of course the native OS backups. We are primarily a Microsoft shop so please keep that in mind. Sorry Linux folks.. :)
We are displeased with Symantec for obvious reasons but the change over to 2012 did it for us and we are wanting to make a push soon. We would like to keep the budget for the software close to what BackupExec costs for our clients.
We still use tapes but also disk based as well. We are looking for the same functionality of a BackupExec of course with added features and support.
I would love to get some recommendations from you all on what you are using or what you've had experience using. We would like to find a new standard at this point.
Thanks in advance everyone.
