Pro Backup Software under OSX (not Retrospect)

Posted:
in Mac Software edited January 2014
I am looking for a professional back up software like Retrospect that would allow me to backup 1,5 Terabytes every night. I need a software that can pilot a tape library with at least 2 drives (DLT or LTO,...).



My pb is that Retrospect cannot manage more than one drive in a library and backing up that much data with only one drive is way too long.



Any idea ?

Thanks!

    Woof.



    Um... IBM's Tivoli is in that range of capability... there's another one that I can *NOT* recall the name of right now, starts with an A... Arcadia?

    I don't think that was it. It was a commercial product, I *thought* from IBM's Tivoli suite, but it's been a couple of years since I last investigated such things.



    rsync works well enough for me, and is free.

    I don't think Tivoli runs under OSX, does it ?!



    The thing is, I would like to perform those backups of an Xraid with an Xserve running OSX server.



    I could use a Windows product like Arcserve running on an Intel machine, but I would feel like a traitor...

    What sort of tape library support do you need? Are we talking automated robotic tape retrieval?

    Yes. Like for this library for instance:

    Retrospect does support that but only with one drive. I need 2 drives backing up at the same time.

    What about Legato or Veritas?
