Backup Solutions

We are a MSP with customers ranging from 1 user to 300 users.  For years we used Backup Exec as our primary onsite solution.  After the changes to 2012 we moved away from the product mainly because in order to backup multiple servers in a single job the entire server would need to be selected.  No idea why they took away the ability to select specific items.

Recently we have been deploying Acronis ABR 11.5.  The capabilities of this product are very impressive but it's ease of use, reliability, and support are lacking.

What we are looking for is an option to backup both physical and virtual servers with relative ease and reliability.

If you are having Hyper-V then there is a different edition Acronis is offering. Hence, I advice you to visit the link below and do a chat session if require or download the trial to try the product.

Have a look on this tool from Paragon Software: http://www.protect-restore.com/products_solutions/products.html
It can be used in mixed environments like yours - VMware vsphere and physical networks.

Thank you.  The licensing for Acronis definitely seems more complicated than it needs to be.  I've heard of both arcserve and paragon but have not tried either one yet.  I'll contact them today.  Thanks

I would look at Veeam or Storagecraft.
Both very highly regarded.

Acronis is releasing a new version of it's backup March 4th called Acronis Access .

You may want to see what the buzz is.

From what I understand, Veeam is designed to backup virtual servers and not physical.  Acronis Access is more like ShareFile than a backup solution.  I'll check out Storagecraft.

Veeam just added the ability to back up physical servers in the past few months.

Retrospect may be a looksee too.

The are going for a new release in the next month or two.  

My issue was it needed a client piece installed on Vmware and did not support the api.

That doesn't matter on 12r2,so...
