new backup solution for a small buiness server - 300gb to 1tb capacity
Posted on 2013-12-13
We have a client (small business 10 users ) who has a G6 hp ML350 server - they currently use a dat drive for backups. with Backup Exec 2010 software.
They are looking to replace their backup drive in the next few weeks. However they currently have a 200gb quantum tape drive.
They need greater capacity backups .
However they are also going to be upgrading the server next year.
They want to avoid having to pay out twice for new tape drive now and a new tape drive in next year for the server.
Is their any advice you can give on any new backup technology they may or will be compatible with any potential server they purchase next year?
I am thinking we could go for a new SAS tape drive but I assume this may well not be compatible with a new server they may purchase in 2014 etc?
Is there any external devices that anyone would recommend that will be highly likely to work with any new server purchased in 2014?
ANy advice would be great :)
