Interesting Backup Solutions …

I’m always being asked to do things for preferably less than nothing. So, I’m always on the lookout for free stuff. At the moment we are re-evaluating how we backup our data and servers. Most of these are now virtualised using VMware vSphere 4.x ESX hosts and iSCSI SANs. Anyhow, I recently discovered that Unitrends have a free version of their Enterprise Backup product for a maximum of 4 VMs:

Unfortunately, the minimum requirement is ESX 4.1U1 and we are still on 4.0. Now, i really do need to make some time to upgrade. There goes another weekend.
