Corporate backup solution recommendations

agradmin asked
Last Modified: 2015-05-01
We currently back up our corporate server infrastructure using Veritas Netbackup, offloading to an HP MSL tape library sending tapes to an offsite facility for secure storage. The total backed up data is around 5Tb, which we back up on a weekly full, daily differential basis.

We have a 300Mb internet connection, and a 100Mb fiber connection to a remote site that could be utilized.

I am looking to budget for a solution that meets the following criteria;
1. Must be cost effective
2. Must fulfill PCI compliance requirements (secure off-site storage)
3. Must be scalable
4. Must support data deduping
5 It must be quick/easy to recover data

I know there are a host of products out there that will support D2D2T, D2 cloud, and D2 co location etc but am wondering what others around our size have installed recently and feel would fit our needs.

Pros & cons of solutions plus rough cost (initial plus ongoing monthly storage charges) would be appreciated.
