Not many replies, huh? Simpana backup is an alternative to the much more expensive products like NetBackup and EMC NetWorker. The manufacturer is CommVault. It looks really nice on paper and the entry level price is much lower than Symantec, so I wanted to find out if there are any users. Apparently not on this group.
The other question would be how many of you are using Oracle Secure Backup? Are you aware that purchase of Sun Microsystems did not only include Java, UltraSPARC and Solaris bud also StorageTEK, the leading tape storage manufacturer. Those guys have 5TB tape with 240 MB/sec IO throughput per single tape.
