Searching for the right backup

The life of a C.C.S. tech support has involved a lot of system backups lately… You see, we’ve been looking at various different enterprise class remote backup solutions over the past couple of months, and each one that we are interested in we like to test thoroughly. This invariably means installing several instances of backup server software, and many more backup clients.

It’s great that so much of the backup software out there is available to test as a free trial these days. This certainly makes our job of pre-release testing that little bit easier. But it must also be said that there are also a lot of backup solutions out there that can’t live up to their own marketing hype… It’s not my place to start writing a review, but suffice to say that we have tried several different brands before we’ve found the gold standard that we’re looking for. Watch this space to find out more!
