Best Enterprise Backup software

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello OCN,

I work for a bankruptcy software company and i have been assigned a project for finding our clients a good backup software. Currently were using some free products that work great but fall short of what we need. We are currently using F backup and Cobian. Problems with the Cobian is that it requires that we swap out drives to alternate backup which has to be done manually on a day to day basis plus it doesn't write over the last back up so the drives fill up entirely to fast. Problems with F backup is that it doesn't backup up network folders.

So OCN what I need is a software that has fully automated software meaning no swapping of drives. Incremental backup for daily use and a full backup to an offsite location. 1 or many suggestions would be appreciated. I plan on taking several options to my boss for discussion and this is for enterprise use so I am looking for paid software. Please and Thank you!

Microsoft DPM is a good backup solution on the windows platform. It was really cheap but i think this year MS almost doubled the price. Works well with iSCSI and i use it all the time.

We use a combination of products. Crash Plan Pro for the domain controller. It will backup whatever you tell it to, network folders included and it's very cost effective.
For system recovery backup we use Acronis True Image. The backups are set to incremental and are uploaded to the NAS which is also backed up with CrashPlan Pro. Not the most fluid experience but it covers our needs for cheap.

Are you looking for simple data backup or system image creation and backup?

I just need a simple solution for data backup. Believe it or not the lawyers that use our software are helpless when it comes to computers. BTW your pic is the creepiest thing I have seen in a while.

Then CrashPlan Pro sounds like a perfect option for you depending on how many clients you have to backup. Either way their plans are flexible to meet different situations.
Yeah that's a creepy avatar alright lol. It straight weirded me out when I saw it so I had to have it thumb.gif
