I am currently backing up about 7TB of data, file, SQL and Exchange, with the bulk of the storage coming from files.
I am backing up about 5 different Windows servers. We are currently using veritas backup exec and are backing up to 2 superloader 3 devices, one with LTO7 and one with LTO6.
The backup jobs are taking longer than the entire night and I'm thinking it time to upgrade to backup directly to disk.
So I'm thinking to go to disk to disk to disk, and I would like the disks to be hot swap-able, so I can remove them every day and store them in our fireproof safe until I have to reuse it, which would be once a month, as I'll have like 20 disks, one for each day the backup runs.
Any idea's what's the best way to proceed? I've been doing some research and there's so many companies out there, that I wanted to know if anyone has had good success with any particular solution?
I would want something that supports at least 8TB drives, so I can do a full backup every night to a single drive.
