Re: Backup solution

Hi Shiju,

We use OmniBack in our environment. We have evaluated Veritas Netbackup a couple of times. It is a nice product, but it is expensive. OmniBack doesn't do all the things we would like it to do, but it works. We would like to see OmniBack do more with streaming backups to a pool of tapes better than it does now. Support hasn't been a real problem with OmniBack. We also have several remote locations where we are using OmniBack, and the ease of use of OmniBack makes it a real winner for us.

Re: Backup solution

We use both Netbackup and OmniBack. Our OmniBack environments seem a lot more stable then the Netbackup environments. I Personally like OmniBack for the following reasons:
1) Feature/Price: Great bang for the buck. Especially in the area of DB integrations.
2) User GUI: Well designed, and very easy to use.
3) CLI : Same as #2.
4) Proven: We have used OmniBack for a couple and have had little problem with it.
5) Deployment of client patches is very easy from the GUI.

Anyway,
That is my $.02

Re: Backup solution

Thanks Thomas! Thanks for the comparisons and advices. We will probably go with OB solution now and will consider Netbackup for a new site.

Thanks everyone and have a great day!
