I’m pretty sold on the fact that for a small business in particular, a backup product needs to be simple to get going with, low maintenance, and on the rare occasion you need support, that there’s somebody on the end of the phone to help you quickly.
Yes, you guessed it – I, from my completely unbiased position, think BackupAssist is a better product for a small company than BackupExec so I’m offering you another good reason to think about moving across.
Starting today, if you make the switch to BackupAssist from Symantec BackupExec 2010 or later, for a limited time, when you buy the core BackupAssist application with 2 year’s upgrade protection, we’ll give you the second year completely free! .
Upgrade Protection entitles you to all new versions, lets you link your software to the Multisite Manager if you wish, and of course provides our top-notch phone, email and remote support, completely free!
If you’re considering a backup strategy for your business, it won’t be long before you need to start thinking about storage media, and which of the various types is best suited to your needs.
In this post, I attempt to help by doing my best, to sum up the strengths and weaknesses of each as I see them, from my experience of working with customers using BackupAssist for Windows (which we’re distributors of).
I hope this will be of some use to you regardless of the software you’re using, however, this is written with BackupAssist users in mind.
It’s inevitable. At some point, if you’ve got BackupAssist managing a pool of multiple drives or cartridges, the person responsible will forget to change them.
One of the nice things about BackupAssist is that it’ll automatically email the individual and tell them they’re single-handedly responsible for putting the entire company at risk and that they’re basically a bad person.
