    Backup

    Good morning all

    I am planning to revamp my backup strategy at my current work place

    at present we have networked hard drives and have installed cobian on servers and all backup to the network hard drive. this is for domain and curriculum.

    was wondering what suggestions you guys may have. I am also thinking to use windows server backup and use incremental facility within this. But i cant get one HD for each server so thinking of a network hard drive.

    any ideas which type of hard drive i can use/get to do backup via network?

    also software for 6 servers with 2 SQL and 1 Hyper v server with 2 VM's.

    I have DPM set up for the SQL and VM's but this is giving me hard time as its always got issues. So not sure if i should fix that or look at something thats easy to use!

    school will be closing down in 2-3 years so budget is not HIGH sadly!

    any ideas?

    The type of harddrive isn't going to matter, you want a file server of some kind that you can put all your backups on to. Something second-hand, or whatever you have around spare, will probably do - a backup server doesn't have to have great performance. You'll probably want 4 harddrives in a RAID array of some kind - software RAID is fine, you don't have to have a hardware RAID card. If you're buying new, HP's Microservers are very good value - a couple of hundred pounds, and will take four drives each. We're backing up our networked file areas with rsync, which takes around 15 minutes per backup once the initial sync is done.
