The main area of confusion is what to do about backup and DR. We are looking at either Symantec Vray or Veeam for the software but struggling on the hardware. Due to size of backups RDX or USB based storage is out of question due to transfer rate.
The customer is willing to spend around a 3K on the backup and DR and can cope with up to 1 working day downtime but i would like to see if we can reduce this to a few hours.
What software and hardware would you recommend and how would you set this up.
