I'm looking at a backup solutions for the office (mix of Windows
desktops/laptops and Linux boxes). Amanda is the backup solution I'm
aware of from days gone by. Is anybody on list using Amanda in anger
in a similar setup? Anything I should be aware of?
Anything else I should be looking at? Not averse to putting my hand
in my pocket if there's something out there that would make my life a
lot easier (we also had ArcServe at one point). If you're
particularly proud of how you manage backups, please do share.
On the backed what are people using for storage - tape, DVD, removable
disk, online, (any thing else?). Online appeals to me (one less thing
to think about) but the amount of data going over the net would worry
me (esp in the case where we wanted to do a restore).
And finally - anybody using these zmanda.com for support.. I know the
idea of paying somebody for support would be anathema for most of you
guys but until we get a full time sysadmin it's an option I might
consider (depending on how easy the whole Amanda thing is).
