Veritas Backup Exec has always been a bit problematic. Odd errors that are hard to troubleshoot. False failure reports. Slow backup throughput sometimes, for no obvious reasons.
So I've been wondering what products are out there in the same price range ($3000-5000 to protect 10 servers) that are good and solid. BTW that price range automatically excludes Netbackup or Legato.
Oh, and it has to run on Windows, but it would be good if it was able to back up *nix systems. Also has to be able to backup open files, Exchange 2003 and SQL 2000 dbs.
