I stand corrected. Didn't know.Please justify your statement ....
As Novabackup does SQl, Exchange, Open files and Disaster Recovery... So why is it not as good as Backup exec ?
Feel better now?
Quantum i think do a SATA dat drive, and it looks like the hp drives could be OEM'ed from Quantum, but that doesn't explain why there's no mention of a SATA version on the hp website, unless it's an older model.
Didn't realise they did usb aswell - here i was stuck with scsi for tape connectivity. Looks like i need to join the 21st century.
Im fairly sure the HP ones are HP rather than re-baged. The freecom ones are HP ones (I've had them before as they were at one point nearly £150 cheaper than the HP ones!) But I could be wrong. I hadn't spotted they were doing a SAS one but it would make sense as they are moving more of the ProLiants to SAS now instead of SCSI.
No your not wrong, spot on actually.The freecom ones are HP ones (I've had them before as they were at one point nearly £150 cheaper than the HP ones!) But I could be wrong.
Goes to show that it's all about the brand that attracts a lot of peopleGood stuff Begs the question why do places sell both Freecom and HP ones that are identical appart from the price
Went to a Server 2008 workshop late last year. The chap hosting it is an MVP and runs his own consultancy company. Upon raising this issue with him, he simply said it's tough. Businesses should get with the times and use modern backup methods.
So basically, MS don't care if you are a small business that doesn't have a lot of money, i.e. a primary school.
I'm no fan of tape backups, but this is narrow-minded thinking from the Redmond Beast.
this is bad for us as our LEA have said that we can only back up the SIMS data to a tape drive, we are not allowed to use a CD, or portable hard drive.
anyone know if there is any freebie software that allows you to backup to to tape??
@button_ripple - You could try writing to your authority and pointing out that Windows Server 2008 (without third party software) no longer supports backup to tape.
There's no immediate rush to upgrade to 2008 server for at least another year, by which time your authority should of updated their backup policies for schools.
Apologies in advance for naivety-I'm only a drone.
Can't you just keep running your old server as a backing-up server?
People still use tapes We moved towards hard disk backups about 3 years ago!
