BRU v. arkeia

I've been using BRU for backups, but now I need to back up an NT server
as well.

How does arkeia stack up against BRU?

I like BRU's command line interface.  It's easy to schedule and run.

How similar is arkeia - does it have a CLI for the NT client?  Can you
back up an NT system using a tape drive on a linux box?

and, will arkeia work with my BusLogic adapter (their website is mute on
this - they recommend an adaptec, bu they don't say if they require it).

1) I have not tried BRU yet although I shall be doing so in the next few

2) You can download a demo copy of Arkeia.  I have tried it and it is a very
capable package.  On the basis of emails with the manufacturers of BRU it
seems that Arkeia is much more capable in many areas.  Its ability to backup
NT boxes over the network worked very well for me.  Overall, I was impressed
by Arkeia and would have bought it but for the fact that there was no way to
schedule an automatic incremental backup based on a previous manual backup
(I confirmed this in the course of several emails with Knox).
Unfortunately, that is a capability which I require and which BRU claims to

Hope that helps,
