    Okay, what is the easiest, most efficient and most reliable to back up a server..Set hard drives in a raid configuration, or norton ghost? We are running NT Server. Thanks for the info. Laters.

    Going the RAID 1 route it's done straight away and is the most effective way of backing up. ;)

    there are at least 2 different issues here.

    1. is server uptime

    2. backup

    Raid while good is not a backup system, raid is designed to do 2 things, 1. give you a bigger HD, 2. Provide redundancy so that your server can keep running

    the best raid system is raid 5 (requires min 3 HD's ), this gives extra space & redundency


    2. Backup - the best software that i know off is seagate backup exec - note most databases have to be stopped before they can be backed up

    RAID-1 is the simplest and most cost effective way to get redundancy, when one drive dies, replace it and the array rebuilds itself. Simple! :)

    tape drives or somefin like that are pretty simple to get goin, we use ArcServe at work, but I am CERTAIN there are better options out there for backups...

    I have heard tape drives work sometimes and other times they don't. We need the most reliable. Thanks for the info. Laters.
