Basically, I've got a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday folder for the server Monday's full backup replaces the previous Monday's full backup and so on. It's lovely not changing tapes!

we do full backups using veritas onto tape for our 2 dc's. We backup our other servers to a backup server with raid 5 array, this syncs weekly with a usb drive which we store offsite.

Been looking at a SAN solution which incorporates a D2D2Tape solution which will have a 10Tb capacity uncompressed which will last the school for the next 5 years this will be managed with Acronis Enterprise software.
These following factors have been thought about when looking at the backup solution:
1. ease of use
2. how much data needs to be backed up
3. how much time to back up (at present)
4. Live incremental backup for when schools go 24/7 365
5. restoration times including full DRP
This system will probably be in the thousands but will be totally scalable.

So a backup device in a building half a mile away is not an acceptable risk? I'm sure some of the users of this forum live within this radius of their school.

Feel free to have a look down to see it in action or I can send the necessary information on the equipment used and costs if necessary.

Just a cautionary note on NTBackup. If the file on the drive or tape becomes corrupted there is no procedure/method to recover individual files from out of the good bits of the file. So if your 250gb backup file has a couple of bad errors in it that keeps it from mounting there is no easy published way to recover any files from the backup.
We use NTBackup but we split up the resources into multiple jobs ie. Exchange, System state, User Docs, Shared Drives this way if one of the files is damaged the whole lot is not lost.
