    More information would be helpful as suggested in the answer. I would say that if you are looking for something that is for long term retention then a tape system is good as you can keep the data on tape, offsite, if needed and it is not too expensive. Anything other than that I would go with Disk. I use Veritas Netbackup on Server 2003. I have multiple ways that I store the backups. Tape is one and I have a lot gonjg to disk. A good disk solution that offers great compression is Data Domain. Good Luck.

    Lots of tools are available including freeeware. But the one which are market leader are as below; HP Data Protector (OmniBack) http://www.openview.hp.com/products/dataprotector/ IBM TSM http://www.tivoli.com/products/index/storage-mgr/ Veritas NetBackup http://www.veritas.com/us/products/netbackup/ Legato Networker http://www.legato.com/products/networker/ CA ARCServe http://www3.ca.com/Solutions/ProductFamily.asp?ID=115 Selection of the tool is absolutely based on the business need and the budget around the spendings. Otherwise each of the tool has capability of backing the data and restore... Hope this has given some direction :)

    I realize this is a rather old post, but I'd like to suggest a Unitrends backup appliance. It's an integrated all-in-one solution that supports more than 100 operating systems and applications. It also includes deduplication, bare metal support and archiving with pricing starting at $2495 ($75 per month with a three-year lease). Try it for free.
