Tape Backup Software
Following on from a thread a while ago about tape backups, does anyone have any recommendations for backup software? I'm not really interested in the pros and cons of tape backups in general, just the best way to get them done! I've not really handled this before, so i'm a blank canvas when it comes to your recommendations. Thanks in advance for any contributions!
I've found retrospect to be very reliable
just an idea ?
Retrospect is good.
I've seen announced (don't remember how or its name) a device for backup that is only a pc with hard disk, network card and some simple linux OS. this device sells as integrated and ready to run backup with integrated backup/restore software.
I used to like Retrospect, and then encountered a problem that their support couldn't fix (backups randomly stopping). Then they switched to paid support, so we went to BackupExec, which is somewhat better. However, for non-enterprise solutions, it seems that there is a hole in the middle pf the market (at least to me).
Don't buy CA. Spent nearly $6000 on their BrightStor software for Windows and Linux.
We use Veritas BackupExec, probably the most expensive option but it works well.
Tivoli from IBM - expensive but does the stuff
