I originally had contracted with another person to do this project for me, but that person has lots of family/work issues to deal with so he suggested that I submit a proposal on RAC.
What I am trying to accomplish is to develop a bulletproof backup on 2 Windows 2003 servers, and 1 Windows 2000 server. One of the Windows 2003 servers is running MS SQL server on it. What I am trying to stay away from is spending 900 dollars for a program like Back EXEC to backup up my servers. I am sure someone knows some way to do this in a cost efficient matter.
I am open to suggestions, but I would like to get started on this ASAP as I have no backups currently. The person for this project must suggest a methodology and implement that methodology. I have no desire to 'steal' your idea and implement it myself. If necessary I have no problems purchasing a 3rd part program to get the job done. Personally I like using Norton Ghost, but that program will not work for servers.
The server will be backed up to a NSD (Network Storage Device)that is online which can either be done via a mapped drive, or FTP. In addition, I must be able to restore the data easiliy as well.
I look forward to working with the right person on this project.
