    Anyone use CA ARCserve Backup

    Anybody got feed back on Arcserve 11.5. I'm thinking of changing from a creaking veritas 9.0 and it seems cheaper (with school deal) to move to CA. So any feedback would be good 8)

    Re: Anyone use CA ARCserve Backup

    We have Arcserve here, but I'm slowly moving to an NTBackup-based remote disk backup.

    I find the Arcserve interface terrible and totally over complicated TBH, but then I think that's the case with most enterprise backup progs. See if you can get a demo first - I'd show you round ours but we're many miles away. I used Veritas about 3 years ago on Win2k I think and I remember it being more intuitive than Arcserve.

    Sorry if that's not what you wanted to hear. If you don't have a problem with the interface I think they do "competitive upgrades" from other packages such as Veritas so you might want to look into that.

    I'd have a look first - ArcServe used to be an absolute ^%&*% to administer. I'm breaking out in a sweat remembering having my desk covered with print outs of all the service fixes that had to be applied in a particular order to keep it running - though this was a few years ago - maybe they've smartened up since then.

    Re: Anyone use CA ARCserve Backup

    I've just had a flyer through from European Electronique with an offer for this. Compared to what we're using atm (Legato Networker) it is disturbingly cheap.

    £117 for the main backup agent as long as it is bought with at least two modules:

    Disaster Recovery @ £105
    Agent for open files @ £120
    Exchange agent @ £187
    SQL agent @ £187
    Additional Server agent @ £47
