Who are you using for Back-Ups?..

  Asked By: Rickie    Date: Apr 28    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 6010

Is anyone interested in sharing what they are doing for backup? Here are the
list of vendors that I have found so far. Any comments on any of them from
someone that maybe using one or the other?

AvePoint
MetaLogix
CommVault
Idera

Comments? Any others?

Seems to me the best solution will allow for 'down to document' level restore
and 'config_db' included backup.

Currently: CommVault. It's ok... by far not my favorite. Had issues once users
went past a certain number of documents/items in a library/list. AvePoint was
awesome when I used it, but rather expensive. We're hopefully going to DPM by
the end of this year. From what I've played with so far ...has been great!

We use Avepoint and we recently upgraded to their latest version and
have had a TON of problems. A couple of times we were not able to
restore sites even with help from their support. We also found  that it
was crippling our web front ends because it was trying over and over
to backup  data that we have previously deleted during a cleanup. Dont
want to vendor bash but we are looking for a new product as well.

I have heard pretty good things about Microsoft's DPM.

We're using Symantec Backup Exec 12 for SharePoint. Having a little
bit of trouble getting it to back up the SSP DB but we just started
with it so we're still troubleshooting. Other than that, seems ok so
far.

To everyone that responded.... thanks! I know people are always careful when to
vendor name drop. But, if it is done right, it can be a good thing for everyone.
We get real world examples of the product in the wild and the vendor gets fresh
feedback they may not be aware of to date. So, thanks to everyone that offered
their .02 cents.
