Ideal combined setting (OS X + Windows) backup?
Possibly I'm going after a wishful thinking below, yet I 'd actually such as to locate a very easy to make use of backup remedy that sustains both Windows and also OS X, probably something individuals never ever need to think of till the most awful takes place.
Since you stated venture backup, I'll state both Tivoli Storage Manager and also Veritas NetBackup. Tivoli often tends to be extra IBM - driven whereas NetBackup virtually has customers for nearly every little thing.
NetBackup hurts to set up once you get it functioning, it'll go on going. I've applied a system for a consumer that was supporting over 48TB daily with over a 99+% success price.
I have no suggestion concerning smaller sized systems =)
I'm making use of Jungledisk and also have actually been exceptionally satisfied with it for information backup objectives, for OS backup I'm simply Time Machine on my Mac and also for Windows I'm ready to re-install if the most awful takes place.
In addition to that, I'm making use of syncplicity to maintain simply my "job documents" in sync in between work/home/laptop equipments.
CrashPlan is great. I utilize it to support numerous Macs and also a Windows box to local/network disks and also remote web servers online (mine, not theirs). It conveniently sustains numerous locations per equipment, does step-by-step back-ups for life, deduplication, compression, etc Also, it'll do near - as - continual back-ups (every number of mins, if you desire) and also takes care of weird network arrangements flawlessly, that makes it a wonderful suitable for laptop computers.
Prior to CrashPlan I made use of a mix of Retrospect and also Bacula. I actually would not advise either, for various factors. Both have not made the change from tape to disk back-ups, so you wind up saving large consecutive documents on disk like tape, and also still need to by hand handle your backup generations, remodel complete back-ups etc. Of both, Bacula, while a discomfort to set up, is substantially extra trusted.
I made use of to make use of Mozy. yet nowadays I'm making use of BackBlaze.
I located Mozy to be rather flakey, and also it made use of to hog my CPU a whole lot. I've located Backblaze to be affordable and also much less invasive. Ultimately you require to offer both remedies a search for out which one benefits you.
The only multi-machine combined Mac OS X and also Windows backup system I've made use of is Dantz Retrospect ; Dantz was acquired by EMC numerous years back, and also Retrospect is still a living item.
My experience back in the late 1990s via very early 2000s was that they gave a wonderful step-by-step backup device for numerous systems on a LAN. It did take them a release to clean their Windows and also Mac OS X assistance once they did, I began listening to good ideas concerning their Windows backup remedies also.
Back in the very early 2000s their Windows and also Windows Server (consisting of Exchange) backup assistance sufficed that it caused a division of a Very Large Company that I was doing some consulting for to switch over to Retrospect. I was doing software program growth for them, not systems/network management ; it was the Windows individuals at their website that uncovered and also studied Retrospect.
I have actually been making use of Mozy on both OSX (primarly ) and also Windows for over a year currently with couple of troubles, consisting of throughout screening of recuperation. The largest trouble, which I do not assume is addressed by any kind of backup remedy, is the slowing down of the computer system brought on by inscribing or establishing which submits demand to be supported. Additionally, Mozy is really economical and also they have both venture (practical rates ) and also individual backup remedies (specifically economical ) There are various other comparable solutions around currently.
An additional solution that appears fairly comparable is Blackblaze. Comparable rates and also solutions to that of Mozy.
