    Need a Backup Solution

    What would you guys recommend for a backup solution that works on Windows 2008 (DFS & VSS), Exchange 2007 and Sql Server 2005?

    At moment all we have is Volume Shadow copy! I am trying to resource a couple of External HDD's (1.5Tbs) to keep offsite backups

    Is BackupExec any good? and can it do all 3 above?

    We put in a R1soft CDP server at Easter with three windows agents. I have been really impressed with it.

    Saved my bacon a few weeks ago when a server went south. Full system drive restore had me up and running again in a matter of a couple of hours.

    I also find the guys at R1soft are very helpful. We had an issue with the LEAs proxy messing up the activation. R1soft changed my licence so I didn't have to activate.

    Got same issue with activation via our own firewall - just get
    Code:
    Error:
    Activation Failed. Failed to create output stream: Connection refused: connect

    Yup that will be it not being able to contact the activation server.

    I don't think the cdp server itself is set up to use a proxy so it's trying to connect directly.

    We use BackupExec 12 on our Windows 2008/Exchange 2007 server. Seems to work well. I'm pretty certain there is support for SQL Server 2005 too.

    Microsoft DPM is fantastic, I don't know if, or how well, it would work with external drives.

    DPM is worth a look for sure! you can have a upstream DPM server too that could be off site not got that far yet though, I've just got an on-site dpm box at the moment.

    Especially since the educational price is next to nothing.
