you want to back up 107 W2003 Servers?

by CG IT In reply to How to take a centralized ...

first, you have to determine how much data your going to backup, then get the necessary storage space.

If you want to backup the system state of 107 servers, I'd think you might want to opt for SAN and have the servers run their native NT backup and storge it on the SAN.

if your only going to backup files stored on the 107 servers, NT Backup can handle this though I would caution that data transfer over a network and make backing up take a considerably long time. you might find that the backup will run longer than a nighttime.
