I've got a small business customer currently using Backup Exec for NW.

They want to upgrade to OES LInux.

I was looking at Arkeia and it seemed that at one time it was free for a
certain amount of data.

I just got the price quote and about fell out of my chair.

$4,000

They charge extra if you backup to disk and then dupe to tape (Symantec
does not)
They charge like $1800 for a tape library option (good grief)

I'd use Amanda with NOWS SBE but it has no GUI front-end which makes it
useless to the customer.

Does Symantec have an upgrade from BackupExec to a Linux version?
