What do the professionals suggest for an operation of about 100 users both Mac and PC clients concerning backup software?. Ive used BakBone NetVault and it was ok so Im leaning towards it but am wondering what success has been had with others. Please forget Retrospect...it's a joke at this point.

 

Enterprise level suggestions only!

 

Thanks,

 

Scott

    For 100 enterprise-grade users on different OSs, and probably physical or virtual servers, the strongest value right now IMO is Zetta online backup service. With that many users you don't want software like Backup Exec or CrashPlan and Carbonite that charge per software licence.

    I agree, Retrospect has gotten really poor and has never recovered from its once slick operation pre 2004. Are you backing up individual clients or a central repository where data is kept?

    I looked at quite a few backup applications for K-12 networks last spring and I don't recall seeing anything with that functionality. Have you tried the Experts-Exchange website? I think 12.95 still buys you a one month subscription, and you have access to a wide range experienced technical people from all sorts of networks. When I have used it I often get multiple answers to questions that I post within minutes. I think you might find some options and quick answers there.

    Any luck yet, Scott? In their search field I plugged in "Enterprise Backup Solution" and I got a slew of hits from past questions. Might be something useful there.
