Network backup software for Mac
Posted on 2014-01-23
I am aiming to finalize a network backup solution for my Mac users within the next week. Use of a Time Machine server has been unreliable, so I am looking to 3rd party software.
It needs to:
> be stable, reliable and backed by solid support;
> quickly receive updates in response to major issues;
> backup to an NTFS share on the network;
> support OSX 10.8-10.9;
> support SMB; bust mostly;
> ...not have any surprise quirks that will cost a lot of time in management and troubleshooting.
I would like it to:
> support iSCSI;
> support SMB2 & AFP
Acronis and Carbon Copy Cloner are some of the big ones that come to mind, but I'd really like to hear anyone who has direct experience working with any like softwares.
