Poll: Recommended backup disk appliance
Posted on 2013-07-01
We have long used Tape as our primary backup and are looking to go to disk based backup and I'd like to get your input on what you are using whether it be SAN, NAS or a backup appliance from Quantum, ExaGrid, etc?
The appliances boast their unique ability to outperform plain disk with throughput, I/O and offer deduplication and compression so that is the way to go. I have not spoken in depth with anyone nor looked at cost, but wanted to see what others recommended first.
