We are currently using BackupExec 9.0 on our 10 NW 6.5.5 servers.There are
several items which I find very annoying. Therefore I am in the process of
looking for a replacement. I had used ARCserve in the past (v6.6), but ran
into problems (which prompted the move to BE).

The 10 servers each have about 40GB of user data and apps (from a potential
120GB volume). Plus each server would back up that site's GroupWise data
(up to 13GB) from a different server. Each backup server has an SDLT 320
drive (overkill I know).

Are there any other options? I've heard of SyncSort, but that sounded like
an expensive proposition. I have downloaded the evaluation versions of BE
and AS. It looks like there hasn't been much change between BE 9.0 and 9.2
for NW. We are using the Windows version on a different server and it
looks much more polished. I haven't gotten around to testing the new AS,
but I don't hold out much hope.

What else should I be looking at?
