  • Enterprise Backup- what are the better options?

    I'm looking at a new Enterprise Backup solution. We have around 70 local servers and 30 around the country which will require a backup.

    I'm currently using Legato Network which is a dog of an app. We are looking into Commvault's Galaxy product, but just wanted to know what everyone else is using? We intend to backup Windows filesystems, SQL DBs & Notes servers.

    Thanks.

    CommVault is probably the best you can get, but unless you know it very thoroughly, the TCO will be pretty high

      Agreed, Commvault Galaxy rocks, but is VERY in depth.

      Fortunately they have a great help desk, and even better yet, their hold music is an awesome acoustic guitar version (no vocals) of "Eleanor Rigby" by The Beatles. Wish I could find out where I could get that specific version though!

          We use Bridghead (http://www.bridgeheadsoftware.com) and backup to a offsite tape robot. It's pretty easy to use and has a great notification system.
