My management has decided that they want me to use ArcServe for UNIX
(AIX) on my new AIX box. I am GREATLY distressed by this because I
would have preferred to use either ADSM, Veritas Netbackup, or Legato
(all fairly robust and full featured products).
My management wants to use this product because they seem to be the only
vendor that is touting that they support Solaris X86 with Oracle support
and they support the crappy old library that is installed on our X86
I have not yet educated myself with Arcserve and have hopes that it will
be as robust as the other UNIX backup products that I have used but I am
concerned because UNIX support by this vendor seems to be an
afterthought. They appear to hang out primarily in the Intel space.
In our favor, the system I will be backing up is rather small (only
about 250GB) and we won't be keeping a lot of history in the indexes but
I am still concerned about functionality and about this product working
with the AIX JFS.
Any feedback about experiences with this product would be appreciated.
