I have a customer that today are in need of a new backup solution.

Their needs are the following:

* Client backups (both in house workstations and laptops that's out of office)
* Some server file backups (but not alot, most is done by veeam allready)
* A solution that lets them host the backed up files (they do would prefer a non "cloud" solution)

Today they have a backup exec install that does not work very well and they want to move away from Backup exec completely.


Any suggestion for something good and not too pricey?

How many Windows servers?  How many Windows Stations?  Any other OS?  How many stations in house, how many travel or never report in to the LAN?  

Do you want to backup the OS or just data?  Servers/workstations?

A few servers with filebackup. Will be less and less when we replace them with veeam.

Workstations both on LAN and outside.
Just data backups, not os.

We have chosen to opt for Ahsay ACB and OBM that can backup locally over LAN and also over HTTPS / WAN.
