Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

We use Symantec BackupExec. It will get a bit pricey for you, as it is licensed by server, but it seems to work nicely for us. There are some open source options (Backula, etc) as well as the stock MS Backup that may also accomplish what you want without the associated costs.

    You have to take into consideration what you are backing up and what Agents you might need to do this.... ie if you have a domino server you will need an open file agent for Domino. also agents for SQL etc but Backup Exec is good and the Netbackup version is very good as it will dedupe the data being backup so the same data will take up less space.

    Also as for price - please compare the price of a good backup solution to how much it will ocst the company or you for that matter if all the data is lost.
