Backup software recommendations
I need to look into some backup software for our 5 servers and I'm unsure as to where I should be looking.
I have spoken to a few people who have recommended Symantec Backup Exec, what are your thoughts on that? Do you need a license per server? Or per client install?
Also can anything out there offer Bare Metal Recovery? We don't have SCCM so DPM is out.

You dont need SCCM to install SCDPM - they're two different systems.
We dont have SCCM but we do have 2 DPM servers, one backs up the servers and the other backs up the first DPM. I've tried bare metal recovery of both a Virtual Hyper-V server and a physical server and both worked.

i didn't know that!
How much is DPM going to cost?

OK DPM looks good. A few questions.. Is it the normal Server & Client system? Does DPM have to be installed on one server? Or each file server? And what does it back up to? We need it to back up to a NAS on the other side of school.

I can advise you to use Acronis backup software which is good at server backups. The price starts with $500 per year for a small server. Plus you have a cloud storage and the ability to restore the data to any hardware.
