Backup software for Windows Server Acronis vs Symantec
I am in the process of looking to replace our MIS server which hosts Facility CMIS and Eportal, as part of this I need to look at some new backup software which can backup to tape. Apparantly its an audit requirement that our MIS data is backed up onto tape as well and kept in a fire proof safe, on top of that we can backup to whatever we like but our MIS data has to be on tape.
I would like to purchase some backup software for our environment. On the current MIS system we use Veritas backup exec 9.0 which is very old and probably not the best in this day and age.
I made my mind up that I want to choose either a Acronis or Symantec solution but I'm not sure which to buy. I am looking at Acronis True Image Server which has function to backup and Symantec backup exec. I'm not sure which product is better.
This software will only backup our MIS data (SQL), I use the inbuilt facility in SQL2005 to backup of the SQL data, so would I need to buy the SQL addon for these products or can i get away with the standard server software?
If anyone has any suggestions please feel free to recommend if there is any software better than these two please recommend these also. I dont want to budget more than £400 for the software.
Also if anyone recommends a good tape hardware solution to compliment with this that would be great.
a recommended backup software to tape
Our company is using easus todo backup advanced server to backup our database, and it supports to backup to tape and other storage devices. Since everything goes well, i would like to recommend it, BTW, it is not expensive, we are a small business and we can afford it. Maybe you can have a look. Goood luck!
