Thanks for all the input, we used to use BackupExec to backup all data on our SAN (including VM images, AD data, and everyone's redirected 'my documents') however our tape drive failed and I was given no choice but to use Carbonite to backup all 600GB of data.At 3-4GB of data per day (I'm assuming Carbonite throttles their data throughput) our initial backup will be complete sometime in mid February.On Tue, Dec 17, 2013 at 10:11 AM, Craig Donnan <[log in to unmask]> wrote:Second on Barracuda Appliance. Model 390 for Central office only right now. Support for VM ware allows for backup of the vm image file and send off site. Will probably be using Barracuda at the high school if approved.CraigCraig Donnan, MASystems AdministratorWashington West Supervisory Union340 Mad River Park, Suite 7Waitsfield, VT 05673fax: 802-496-6515On Tue, Dec 17, 2013 at 10:03 AM, Mike Kanfer <[log in to unmask]> wrote:At CSSU, use the Barracuda appliance. We have two- one backs up CVU and Hinesburg and the other one backs up Williston, Shelburne, Charlotte and Central office- all through our VPN's. Each backs up about 2TB of data. The first time it runs, a full backup is done and can take several days to protect bandwidth but after that, a file server is backed up in anywhere from 10 minutes to 25 minutes since it does incremental backups. We backup select folders for databases on workstations of admin assistants in addition to the regular server stuff. From the appliance, the data backs up to Barracuda's cloud for offsite storage of our data. Managing it is done through a web browser- restoring files could not be easier.MikeOn Tue, Dec 17, 2013 at 8:47 AM, Ben Leslie <[log in to unmask]> wrote:
Just out of curiosity, what is everyone doing for data backup...tape drive, cloud storage, leaving it up to students/faculty to backup their own data? What about databases and other data that's more IT admin related and not faculty/student work files?
When you do full backups of your data sets, approximately how much data are you backing up?
