My network currently runs 5 HyperV Machines and I may be moving to max 10 in the next few years. I've been looking at Acronis Hyperware licenses and Symantec's backup Exec or whatever it's called. I haven't had any experience in using this kind of software, but at first glance Symantec's option looks to cover more of what I'm looking for. I don't yet have a quote for it, unfortunado, but Acronis looks to be about 16G fpr ten licenses if I want to keep my drive images local and deduplication off. Can anyone recommend one over the other, or perhaps another solid program? Cloud backup is OOTQ.
I am running both Veeam and Symantec backup exec for backups for multiple clients with different configurations. Out of both backup software I have to babysit backup exec on multiple server every other day to insure that it is still running correctly, and that no services have randomly stopped, or a job has failed. Veeam on the other hand runs just fine. If i had to pick I would good with Veeam.
