    I'd like to use Acronis as my backup software but I have some questions about it's ability to handle large company data.....

    I'd like to set up a backup server with a large disk array (about 5 TB) and high speed tape backup (LTO-2 or LTO-3) attached via FC. Can Acronis handle backing up 20-30 large servers to disk and archiving to tape like this? Can the Acronis Server Enterprise run on one machine (backup server) and backup all the servers on the network? If there are some better suggestions on how to set up an enterprise level backup solution using Acronis? Currently we are using Backup Exec and DLT tape drives on each server and it's very slow to restore data and cumbersome to keep up with tapes for 20-30 different servers. I'm not wild about Backup Exec either. I'd like to hear some of the company backup solutions (hardware and software) that you guys have implemented and what you do and don't like about them. Thanks for any help in advance.

    Hello TideJoe,

    Thank you for your interest in Acronis Remote Server Backup Software.

    We recommend you to use Acronis True Image 8.0 Enterprise Server for Windows. It allows you to create the image of server and save it to the network or to the tape drive.
    As for the tape drives, we would like to note that we have tested only SCSI and ATAPI tape drives and have not tested FC tape drives yet.
    We recommend you to download and install Acronis True Image 8.0 Enterprise Server for Windows trial version in order to see how the program works on your server.

    If you want to back up 20-30 server, you should purchase 1 license of the software per every computer where it will be used.

    You can find the detailed information on how to use Acronis True Image 8.0 Enterprise Server for Windows in the respective User's Guide.
