cost effective backup system.
Posted on 2013-01-30
We have old Veritas Backup Exec 10.1 on windows 2003 server with 2 remote agents installed on two more servers (SQL and Exchange).
The backup media is old USB ver. 1 and it takes long to backup the 3 servers. I have a new server I built which has eSATA and USB 3.0. I'm thinking of replacing our old backup system to reduce backup time.
Does anyone have recommendation to replace this? Any free backup software which can track at least 2 weeks of 150GB backup data with full and differential backup for 3 servers?
The backup system also needs to give feature such as extracting and restoring individual files out of the backup set.
For backup media, I'm thinking of plug/unplug USB disk daily or if there's any disk rack doing this cheap, It would be better
