Is there any backup software for netware which can do backup 2 disk 2 tape ?

We're currently using backupexec 9.1 but we'd like something which can do
backup 2 disk 2 tape and still run on netware.
I'm also having some doubts about future product development of the veritas
netware products considering symantec bought veritas.

Arjan,

I use TaskMaster www.avanti-tech.com to sync (backup) disk to disk and
then I use BackupExec 9.1 to backup disk to tape. Works quite well.

Ken

Novell....it does a server good!

Sorry to butt in here, but BE9.1 will do both disk or tape.

Veritas added Backup to Disk as a capability with 9.1

We use hardware for this... Cybernetcs HSTC ("High speed tape cache") It
looks like a library of tape, but is in fact a large disk array. The
backup software writes to this without an inlink that it is not writing
to tape. The HSTC *then* offloads the virtual tapes to real tape,
outside of the backup window.

I think we're a bit too small for a hardware sollution like that.

As for BE, i know 9.1 has backup to disk but it does not have backup to disk
to tape, in theory you could backup the backup-to-disk folder to tape but
that would be a real hassle to restore things.
You would have to restore the disk folder from tape to the disk and then
create another restore job for the actual file.

The idea is to keep only the last backup on disk and use a normal tape
rotation scheme for older backups. (hence backup2disk2tape 🙂

What about using Backup Exec to duplicate your B2D backup sets onto
tape?

Ah, ok. Just be aware that many "backup-to-disk" solutions in software
actually write the files out to disk in their native file system, which
ends up giving *horrific* backup performance compared to solutions that
emulate tape and thus "stream" the backup data to large contiguous
files. The overhead of backing up individual files to a real file system
(modifying the fat table with each new file) can make those "lesser"
backup-to-disk options unusable.

I have no idea if BE or Arcserve behave this way, I just know *some*
major products do.

That is *exactly* what im looking for.
I've just been fiddeling around a bit with the console and i found that
little duplicate button when i create a normal backup job.
We've always been using the rotation scheme backup job which doesnt have a
duplicate button. That explains why i never found it.

ABACUP 1.69 . Do backup copy on disk or on tape (but only single tape,
NOT loader or changer!)

CommVault Galaxy, but it isn't cheap.
