Advice on multi server backup
We have been approached by a company looking for a solution.
They have 4 windows servers
1 x SBS2003 (with 350GB Data)
2 x Windows 2008 (with 800GB Data each)
1 x Windows 2008 (With 200GB)
They have made the following stipulation.
Each server must do a full backup once a week and that backup be taken off site.
Then each server do a incremental for the other 4 days of the week.
They did not say that the full backup of each server be done on the same night.
Is the only answer BE on each server and 4 suitable SAS Tape drives ? (Expensive)
Or is there a shared tape option.
PS we would like to use Backup Exec as the customer is familiar with this product already.
Any thoughts greatly recvd
