Backups to HP StorageWorks Ultrium LTO5
Right, sovled an issue I was having last week with our server BSODing, turns out the ArcServe Backup Software had decided to stop working properly and kept unloading drivers causing the server to panic and throw a hissy fit before BSOD. Anyway, I've removed ArcServer (v16) and the server is stable, the only issue I have now is that I'm running without backups (although System State and SIMS are backed up remotely as part of the county SLA).
So, recommend me a solution please. We have an Ultrium LTO5 tape drive and ideally I want software that will back up to this, and not break every 18 months or so forcing you to purchase a new license for their latest version (yes folks, the way I solved the ArcServe thing is that we have v15 previously that started doing the same thing on our older server! Fun times .. NOT!).
How do people backup these days? Is tape still a good option, should I be using a remotely located NAS instead or something like that? Etc, etc..
Thanks in advance
