Disk to Disk Backup Solutions.
I'm looking into our backup solution at the moment, and because we have a totally seperate building with a spare pair of fibres running to it, I'm looking at Disk backup solutions and to place over there on their own dedicated link, to stop me having to backup to tape every night using our very old tape changer, but what to buy?
I see two solutons - a Basic NAS box using backup to disk using BackupExec 11d or a proper Disk backup device which uses iSCSI or simelar which Backupexec can talk to directly, but I've not had a lot of luck finding appropreate products.
Anyone already using disk backup (I know lots of you are) who could share information on their setup and how well it performs, what products they brought etc?
Our current full backup is around 350GB, but this is fast expanding. (It currently takes us 4 tapes to do a full backup, which is becoming a pain.) I'm looking for a device with a capacity of at least 2TB ideally - this gives us plenty of space for the time being.
