Laptop Disaster Recovery

By hellbee ·
I am investigating backup solutions for laptops and would like to
ask what other medium to large sized company admins are
doing.

Our management seems to prefer the portable hard disk or
DVD-R approach. I argue that that method has no
accountability or version control, and I would rather see us go
with a block-level centralized solution such as Brightstor for
Laptops and Desktops. The brightstor solution is much more
complicated to price out though, due to bandwidth
requirements.

Are you guys using mobile backup devices or synchronized
folders or something else? What do you like or dislike about the
solution? What do your users, managers, and auditors say about
it?

A contractors view

by zlitocook In reply to Laptop Disaster Recovery

The company I am at now is small but I have talked them into using synchronized
folders and to store the exchange files on the server. When I started out as a contractor every thing was on the users hard drive, no back up of any kind. I have contracted out to some vary large companys 2000 to 3000 users and have had great results. Laptop users are interesting here, I am at a bank so there is a lot of things that can not get out. But they also need wireless access to the internet. We do a full archive and back up every day and the tapes and dvds are taken off site in the afternoon.

laptop backup for mobile workforce

by pauljacobs In reply to Laptop Disaster Recovery

Give this a try - http://www.druvaa.com/products/insync.html

It uses data deduplication to save single copy of emails/docs duplicate across users. This supposedly saves up to 80% bandwidth and WAN/remote users can backup easily.

download is free and should be simple to setup.
