VPN (Firewall ) Recommendations Needed (Using Backup Exec 2012)
I am the IT Administrator of a small medical practice. We want to back up from the practice to the doctor’s home for off-site backup, and have a server there, just for this purpose. Currently, between the SQL database, medical images and patient documents, I am attempting to back up around 160GB of data every 24 hours. I am using Symantec Backup Exec 2012 with the compression enabled. And I am finding that our firewalls (Cisco RV042) are the bottlenecks, and can only sustain about 300kb a sec transfer rate. My Internet connections (with same provider) on both sides are 30MB down, and 10MB up. I thought getting Backup Exec 2012 would fix the problem by compressing the backups, but I think it is time to replace the firewalls. Can someone please recommend a hardware solution with throughput for this scenario? I am sure that many of you Symantec Backup Exec users have had experiences like this. Any advice would be much appreciated. Please and thank you.
