Hi all, What's the current recommended network backup software? I've been through a few in my time and i'm looking for alternatives I could go to. So far I have used the following: Backup Exec - Major Solaris backup agent problems and rubbish tech support (bought via Dell) Arkeia - This has come a long way but previously it would disown its own tapes and the tech support was terrible so because of that i'm reluctant to try again. Amanda / Zamanda - Pretty good, However there is no Vmware agent I can see I also don't like the fact you need to also backup the tape index file. Netbackup - Good but the cost is a bit much Emc / Legato networker - Pricy and a bit complex Tivoli - I found this very complex So i'm looking for something opensource, and free ideally. Has any one tried bacula? I've herd it is quite complex. Other requirements are supporting backup to disk. Agents for; Windows Server 2003, 2008, Vmware ESX, Linux (CentO/S and Ubuntu) Solaris (Sparc and x86). Possible backup to Amazon S3. So, can any one come up with any suggestions?
