Making a backup server

By markg ·
Hi all

I hope you can help, i am working for a company and we want to make a backup server for our main 2003 sbs server, can i do a straight ghost and clone from the existing one or not, do i need to purchase an additional license because we will only use the clone server when the main server is down so only one will be running at one particular time.

Anyone had experience of doing this that can help me.

many thanks

Backup Server

by cschaut In reply to Making a backup server

Backing up a server or implementing a storage server will provide many benefits. The different types of solutions will be based on your current infrastructure. First of all you shouldn't image a server but rather do a complete backup to tape or a NAS device. You can install Windows Storage Server 2003 on the designated server and start at that point. Another option which is cost effective would be to purchase and install a SNAP server. Depending on the amount of data a SNAP may work. Another solution would be a D2D110 from HP. It is a disk based NAS that can be managed remotely.
