Put your thinkin Caps on - Online Backup

TheSwabbie
Hey,

I am setting up an Online Backup company's infrastructure. I am evaluating the following software, any suggestions or comments? let me know if you've had either good or bad experiences with them and I would really appreciate it.

1. Novastor Online Web Backup
2. StoreGrid Online backup
3. Backup Assist

Or - have any suggestions other than these that would work well.

Thanks Guys & Gals

    I've not used any of the software mentioned, so I can't address their quality.

    My question for you is, what company does an Online Backup company use for their Online Backups?

    Seemed like my current painkillers were causing spurious thoughts to jump out of my subconcious - but it turns out I was lucid.

    Thanks for that

    the obvious questions have to be asked.

    I also wonder why the Tylenol commercials say "Nothing works better". Well heck, I'll take nothing, then!

    A little play on words huh! LOL

    We have data center space and are throwing a bunch of hardware at this. So basically - we ARE the company :)

    I think we'd BOTH already figured that out!

    How are you going to back up your backups.

    Please tell me you have the same amount of infrastructure at a second site, somewhere far enough from the first that they both won't be affected by the same act of God?

    My company runs hosted applications. We have 2.5 sites :) Anything less than two is inviting the wrath of Murphy's law.
