Backup Suite

By d.jones092 ·
Morning all.

Anyone have a good suggestion for a backup suite for a Win2k/Netware environment? We only have 4 servers in house (using a 40gb dds dat drive), so we're not looking for anything outrageously expensive like ARCServe or Veritas. We're looking for something small and reliable.

We've already tried products like Novasoft, etc without success. What usually happens is the scheduling features don't work, or they just can't handle the mixed 2k/Netware environment well.

Thanks for any info.

There are several options to choose from. Here are some links (please remove spaces):

But we used ARCServe to backup a Windows NT/Novell environment and it worked great.

what do you actually mean by saying your mixed enviroment ??

Server 1 = DAT tape
Server 2 + 3 + 4 copy data to server 1 on 3 different folders on specific time schedule using the AT + scripting. Then I also do not know the speed of your network layout but in this model its for a slow network (100MB). I normally used veritas. Easy to configure.

But not that I'm a sales guy but one of my friends has developed some brand new stuff, where even your secretary could do the job not joking if you want to know more about his features let me know.

shortlisted features:
send email when job done comlete list of baked up files
Full backup
Incremental Backup
fast backup 10GB in 30 Min
fast recovery 10GB 30 min

http monitoring of proccess
all configuration changes + maintenence via http interface
